Polish newspaper Meczyki claim that Nottingham Forest still have an offer on the table for West Brom winger Kamil Grosicki.

The 32-year-old wasn’t included in Sam Allardyce’s squad last night as the Baggies lost 5-0 to Manchester City.

Naturally, that started some speculation that a departure could be in the offing – and it seems Forest are still keen.

The report also suggests that the player now has no future at The Hawthorns and Allardyce will allow him to leave this month.

West Brom are now thought to be keen to get Grosicki away from their wage bill this month.

After his recent performance against Wolves, a clause in his Baggies contract saw his wages increase to £40,000-a-week.

The latest report does perhaps come as a surprise.

Grosicki had seemingly earned a reprieve since Allardyce’s arrival in the West Midlands.

He started in games against Wolves and West Ham, whilst he also put in a strong performance against Blackpool in the FA Cup.

 

During his three recent appearances he has claimed two assists and it seemed as if his move to Forest was a non-starter.

Now the landscape has seemingly changed, with West Brom wanting to create room in their squad for new recruits.

Would Grosicki be a decent signing for Forest?

In the short-term it has to be said he probably would.

West Brom are clearly not keen on keeping him anymore and on a free transfer it could be a decent piece of business.

Grosicki scored nine goals and claimed seven assists last season, starting at Hull and ending at West Brom where he helped them to promotion.

It’s highly unlikely that Forest will paying him anything close to the £40,000-a-week he is now on at The Hawthorns.

He will, however, want to play ahead of the European Championships and that factor could prove decisive.

Forest have struggled for creativity this season with Joe Lolley and Sammy Ameobi desperately in need of some form.

With Forest’s situation edging towards desperate, the addition of Grosicki might not be such a bad thing as a short-term solution.
