Nottingham Forest made the most serious attempt to sign Kamil Grosicki during the January transfer window.

According to Interia Sport, the Reds submitted the most serious proposal, with Evangelos Marinakis courting the player for six months.

The Polish winger failed to give Forest an answer before the deadline on Monday, however.

Now, the 32-year-old is in limbo and faces a fight to play regularly before next summer’s European Championships.

Grosicki is out of contract at The Hawthorns in the summer and technically Forest could sign him for free.

The Reds have now tried to sign the winger on a few occasions with zero success.

During the summer window, a deal was all but completed. Forest, however, submitted the paperwork 21 seconds too late and the move was scuppered.

The report claims that Grosicki earns £40,000-a-week at West Brom.

That would seemingly make sense as to why the international wasn’t forthcoming in giving Forest an answer.

It’s unlikely the Reds would have handed him a contract remotely in that region and perhaps he will milk his Baggies deal for the final six months.

Have Forest missed a trick with Grosicki?

Not really.

The last thing Forest need in their current battle against relegation is players who don’t really want to be there.

Grosicki had the chances to sign but chose to ignore Forest’s advances.

Chris Hughton has Anthony Knockaert, Sammy Ameobi, Joe Lolley and youngster Alex Mighten to choose from.

There should be enough quality among those players to ensure that Forest don’t cast envious glances towards Grosicki.

Given his hesitations in signing during January, Forest should finally admit defeat in their attempts.
