Kamil Grosicki has suggested during an interview with Polish outlet Super Express that he is still in contact with Nottingham Forest.
The 32-year-old winger was set to sign for the Reds on transfer deadline day, although Forest submitted the paperwork 21 seconds too late.
He returned to West Brom but since his move to the City Ground collapsed he hasn’t made the first-team squad.
Grosicki scored twice in an under-23 fixture on Monday as he bids to impress boss Slaven Bilic.
His days at The Hawthorns do look to be numbered though and a January departure looks to be on the cards.
It would seem that Forest are still keen on the Poland international who will surely welcome regular first-team football.
“It will be an important decision because I want to go to the Euros, but provided I am in shape. The national team is not somebody’s hobby, but a place where the best Polish players should be.”
Could Grosicki be first January signing?
It would seem Forest are still keen on signing the exciting flyer during the January window – although how much they need him is another question.
Forest have lacked a bit of a creative spark so far this season and are in desperate need of a boost when it comes to scoring goals.
Grosicki scored nine goals and registered seven assists during 2019/20, with his season ending in promotion with West Brom.
With that in mind, he might prove an ideal player for the Reds to pursue.
There is a suggestion that other areas are more of a priority, however.
Forest have Joe Lolley, Anthony Knockaert, Sammy Ameobi and Alex Mighten all battling it out for a place in Chris Hughton’s team.
It’s a fair suggestion that the majority of Forest’s midfielders are all similar and a new central player might be targeted.
Given the lack of goals, Hughton might also opt for something a little bit different in attack too.
Grosicki is a steady player though and perhaps he will still be added to the ranks during the forthcoming window.
The £25,000-a-week player shouldn’t arrive at the expense of strengthening more pressing areas though.
