Kamil Grosicki has been tipped to leave West Bromwich Albion as he is surplus to requirements at The Hawthorns, and Nottingham Forest were one of many clubs showing an interest as they tried to sign him before the summer transfer window shut in October.

The Reds withdrew their interest in Grosicki at the same time that the 32-year-old stepped up his match fitness by playing for the Baggies’ under-23s, but Meczyki claimed that Forest remain interested in Grosicki, with an offer still on the table from the Championship club.

Since Sam Allardyce was appointed as manager in December, the Poland international has frequently made the bench and featured in two of Albion’s last three Premier League games (Transfermarkt).

He was left out completely in Tuesday’s 5-0 defeat to Manchester City, however, which may raise questions about his future. Indeed, Meczyki claimed that he was only included in recent games to be put in the shop window.

Grosicki has amassed just 149 minutes of Premier League football this term and finds himself behind Matt Phillips, Grady Diangana, Callum Robinson and Robert Snodgrass in the pecking order.

READ WEST BROM VERDICT

West Brom would ideally like to get Grosicki’s £40,000-a-week salary off their wage bill and are willing to offload him for free to move him on, but Forest’s apparent offer hasn’t been accepted.

Legia Warsaw and Pogon Szczecin have also shown an interest in bringing the 32-year-old back to Poland, so there might be added competition for his signature before the January transfer window shuts.
