We can all agree that Grzegorz Krychowiak’s loan to West Brom, for all the hype that went along with it, hasn’t exactly been a success.
Widely coveted by teams like Arsenal and Manchester City a couple of summers ago, the Poland international ended up at Paris Saint-Germain, where he failed to impress and was then strangely overlooked by the same manager who started him week in, week out at Sevilla.
Wanting first-team football, a loan to West Bromwas sorted out, but with that not going to plan, there’s been a lot of talk of Krychowiak moving elsewhere.
One of the rumours sent him to AS Roma, where former Sevilla director of football Monchi is currently in charge of transfers, and it made some sense, especially if the club could cash in on Maxime Gonalons.
However, according to the player’s agent, David Manasseh, that doesn’t look like it’s going to happen.
Speaking to Radio Centro Suono Sport, relayed by Le10 Sport, he said: “Krychowiak to AS Roma? Sincerely, I haven’t received a phone call from Roma for my protégé. Will he stay at West Brom? That’s something we need to evaluate.”
So, interestingly enough, a move away from the Hawthorns hasn’t been ruled out, and it seems a lot of it will be down to Alan Pardew, who hasn’t exactly used the former Sevilla star a lot since taking over from Tony Pulis.
That, and the fact Paris Saint-Germain need to reach an agreement with another team.
