Oh so close to signing for Burnley in the summer, Kamil Grosicki could get his dream move to the Premier League after all, but to a different club.
Initially furious that his late summer transfer broke down, the Polish winger remained professional and continued to play for his current club, Stade Rennais in Ligue 1, where he’s now caught the eye of Slaven Bilic.
According to Przegląd Sportowy in Poland, West Ham have taken a strong interest in the Poland international after his agent got to work early in the season to try and secure his client a move away from France.
The cost of the transfer would not be a problem, with the Polish media understanding Rennes ‘should not require more than €7m’ from the London Stadium contingent for their winger, whose contract with them runs until 2020.
Przegląd Sportowy say that West Ham currently need ‘a pulse, someone who will add a bit of freshness and panache’ to their game, and that Grosicki would fit the bill ‘perfectly’.
No bid has been made yet, but if any of this is true, money certainly won’t be an issue, and with Gokhan Töre’s future at West Ham in doubt, Grosicki would be an apt replacement.
The 28-year-old has made 11 appearances for Stade Rennais so far this season, scoring three goals and assisting his teammates once along the way.
