Burnley fans might remember the transfer that never was over the summer window, that of Rennes winger Kamil Grosicki.
The Poland international seemed destined for a future at Turf Moor when Rennes, fees and contract already agreed, suddenly asked for more money, which Burnley said ‘no thank you’ to.
The player was left rather upset that his dream move to the Premier League collapsed, but it might not all be over just yet.
That is, at least, according to Le10 Sport.
They reveal in their monthly magazine that Rennes would be willing to let him leave in the winter, and the player would be more than pleased to abide by those rules.
The Premier League would be his preferred destination, with Burnley’s ears probably pricking up at the mention of a possible deal, but they wouldn’t be alone.
Le10 claim that both Everton and West Ham, who also expressed some interest in the 27-year-old, might be willing to come back to the fore were an agreement possible.
With a contract with the French club until 2020, the winger wouldn’t go for cheap, at least by Rennes’ standards, and a fee of around €10m could be the winning bid.
Peanuts for the Premier League, really.
