West Bromwich Albion forward Kamil Grosicki has the option to return to Poland this month, but his transfer would be the most expensive in the history of the league.
That’s according to journalist Michal Pol, who says Grosicki needs to be playing regularly if he’s to go Euro 2020 with Poland this summer.
Grosicki has found himself out of favour under both Slaven Bilic and Sam Allardyce at the Hawthorns this season, with just one appearance in the Premier League to his name thus far.
He’s been expected to seal some sort of move, with him keen to be playing regularly to ensure he’s in Poland’s squad for the Euros.
Yesterday we covered a report from his homeland that claimed the West Brom player was thinking of making a short term move back to Poland to get the playing time he needs.
According to that report, such a move would require plenty of assistance from West Brom and Pol has now backed up those assertions with the figures involved.
“There is an option to return Kamil Grosicki to Ekstraklasa. Would that be a good idea? For the staff – yes,” he told his Youtube channel, relayed by Meczyki.
“It is important for Jerzy Brzęczek that the footballer should play regularly. If so, he will take him for the Euro. “Grosik” must play, be in the rhythm of the match.
“There is an option that Grosicki could be loaned to one of the three Ekstraklasa clubs. Legia, Pogoń, Jagiellonia. But Grosik is too expensive.
“He – converted into zlotys – earns 700,000 a month. PLN per month. It’s supposed to be a loan, so you can make a deal with West Brom.
“The optimistic assumption that the WBA will take on half of the salary, it still leaves 350,000. PLN for the Polish club.
“So by the end of the season you would have to spend PLN 1.4 million. This would be the most expensive loan in the history of Ekstraklasa.”
