Kacper Kozłowski came up through the ranks of Pogoń Szczecin’s youth system before making his way into their first team in 2019.
The 18-year-old’s development at Pogoń has not only helped him debut for Poland at a young age, but he’s also attracted interest from Brighton & Hove Albion, Manchester City and Liverpool.
Reports from the Polish press last month indicated Pep Guardiola’s side are ‘willing to pay’ over €10m for the midfielder, while Liverpool are keen to offer more than what Brighton are ready to propose.
Despite the reported interest from City and Jürgen Klopp’s side, Super Express explained the Seagulls are showing great determination to acquire the player’s signature.
Pogoń Szczecin president Jarosław Mroczek has now revealed talks are ongoing with Graham Potter’s side for the sale of the Poland international in the winter market.
Interia Sport interviewed the Pogoń chief and when asked whether he can confirm the negotiations with Brighton, Mroczek said: “We make no secret that the talks are ongoing. And they are advanced.
“I think that there will be a moment in the near future when we will communicate everything. For now, I encourage everyone to be patient. As you can imagine, you are not the first to ask…”
After admitting the talks are ‘advanced’ to sell Kozłowski to the Premier League side, Mroczek stressed his side are working on different possibilities, if the player were to seal an exit in the winter market.
“This is also a subject [Kozłowski leaving in January] of talks, but we, as Pogoń, are preparing for various scenarios. It’s certainly not that we don’t have plan B and C. Because we do. And if Kacper leaves now, we will react accordingly,” he explained.
“From my experience, I know that the transfer is certain only when the documents are signed by both parties. And for now, they are not. Always at the last minute, a detail may pop up that will cross out the transaction. That is why we prefer to work in silence.”
