Nottingham Forest showed interest in signing Kamil Grosicki in the last window and the Championship side found an agreement with West Bromwich Albion.
However, Chris Hughton’s side couldn’t complete his signing because there was a delay in submitting the paperwork related to the transfer.
Despite failing to acquire the winger’s services, Nottingham Forest have maintained contact with the 32-year-old and this was confirmed by the player himself earlier this month.
Polish journalist Mateusz Borek told ‘Misji Futbol’, as relayed by Meczyki, it’s best for the Baggies midfielder to leave The Hawthorns in the winter market.
West Brom sacked Slaven Bilić and appointed Sam Allardyce as his successor last week. In his first match in charge of the club, the former England manager suffered a 3-0 defeat at the hands of Aston Villa.
“A week ago, Slaven Bilić drew against Manchester City. ‘Uncle Sam’ came, conceded in the derby, sometimes the effect of the new manager is absolutely absent,” Borak said.
“Kamil Grosicki has not entered again, so it does not seem that his situation will change. After this 0: 3, others will probably get a chance. A new coach has come, he will have a good look at the players this week and will probably make some changes.
“Does that help our representative much? Frankly, I do not think so, and I think that Kamil should return to this concept [leaving West Brom], which [he] was very close to doing a few months ago.”
Borak further makes an observation that with clubs, including Nottingham Forest, still showing interest in Grosicki, the Pole should change clubs in January, in order to get himself picked for Euro 2020.
“There is still interest from Nottingham Forest and if he wants to be in shape, and if he wants to represent Poland, he must play these 10, 15 or 20 matches in the second half of the season,” he concluded.
