Nottingham Forest tried to sign Kamil Grosicki when Chris Hughton was in charge but the move fell south at the final hurdle.
With just minutes left of the deadline day drama, Forest thought they’d got their man.
They later found out that the relevant paperwork had been submitted seconds after the deadline and he was forced to stay put.
It was Meczyki that made the claims linking the Poland international with a move to Forest and they were certain something would happen.
The 33-year-old is now with Polish top-flight outfit Pogon Szczecin and he’s busy making quite an impact.
So far during 2021/22 he has found the net four times and registered five assists and seemingly his form hasn’t gone unnoticed.
In an interview with the Polish website, Sport, he claimed that Lorient made an attempt to sign him during the January transfer window.
Grosicki claimed he was buzzing with the efforts to sign him from the Ligue 1 outfit; although he claimed that his current club wouldn’t agree to the transfer.
He also mentioned that he wasn’t sure that he wanted to leave his homeland so soon after arriving.
The moment has gone but Grosicki would have been good Forest signing
He’s now 33 and Forest have moved on from the Grosicki saga. Despite that, he would have made a decent addition to the Reds ranks.
Grosicki is a seasoned Championship performer and with that in mind, he would have been ideal under Hughton.
Anthony Knockaert was added instead but he struggled to have the impact that many supporters craved him to have.
The performer is doing well this season. Of course, he’d be unlikely to get in the Forest team with Brennan Johnson, Philip Zinckernagel, Joe Lolley and Alex Mighten all in place.
Grosicki does have something though. It perhaps speaks volumes that a Ligue 1 outfit wants him even after he’s headed back to Polish football.
