Kamil Grosicki is a name that simply refuses to go away when it comes to being linked with a transfer to Nottingham Forest.
The West Brom winger came agonisingly close to signing for the Reds in October on transfer deadline day.
It was apparent that Forest submitted the relevant paperwork 21 seconds after the deadline, with the EFL failing to approve the transfer.
It would seem Grosicki and his representatives weren’t faultless, however.
A report by The Athletic has claimed that Grosicki remains a target this month – despite the club being unhappy with the international in October.
It suggests that Forest were disgruntled with the Poland international’s hesitancy and that’s what caused the move to break down.
Grosicki returned to West Brom but has failed to make an impact.
To make matters worse, Sam Allardyce has now replaced Slaven Bilic and his Premier League chances look even more remote.
The 32-year-old did earn a rare opportunity to sign on Saturday.
Allardyce took the chance to look at several of his fringe players in the FA Cup against League One outfit Blackpool.
Grosicki claimed an assist and tucked his penalty home but the Baggies were dumped out following a shootout to the Tangerines.
With only the Premier League to focus on, his chances of more action look slim, to say the least.
Should Forest return for Grosicki?
It wouldn’t be the worst addition Forest could make this month but it would represent another short-term option.
Grosicki collects £25,000-a-week at West Brom and with Allardyce keen to reshape his own squad, they’ll probably want a good chunk of that paying.
There is enough to suggest he could improve Forest though.
Sammy Ameobi and Joe Lolley look badly out of form and some competition wouldn’t go amiss.
Anthony Knockaert has done pretty well since coming in and there is more to come from youngster Alex Mighten.
It seems as though the man with 78 caps messed Forest around a bit during the last window.
With that in mind, the Reds must think very carefully as to whether they want to pursue him again this month.
