Joe Masi and Luke Hatfield discussed all of the latest West Bromwich Albion news on the most recent edition of The Express and Star’s Baggies Broadcast podcast and Masi spent some time talking about the future of West Brom winger Kamil Grosicki during the show.
As per Transfermarkt, Grosicki is one of four natural left-wingers within the current Baggies squad and the Poland international, who joined West Brom for £855k from Hull City last January, has enjoyed just 55 minutes of first-team action for the West Midlands club this season, with that game time coming in the Baggies’ 3-0 EFL Cup win over Harrogate Town back in September.
The 32-year-old was close to departing from The Hawthorns in the summer transfer window, with the Baggies having agreed on a deal with Championship club Nottingham Forest for the player’s transfer only for the relevant paperwork to not get submitted in time for the transfer to be completed, however, during this podcast Masi shared that he thinks Albion will have no trouble moving on Grosicki when the transfer window re-opens in January.
The journalist said: “He’ll easily get a Championship club in January, easily. It’s just a shame it just hasn’t worked out, I’ve said a million times, I personally think he’s got something to offer.”
Do you expect Grosicki to leave West Brom in January?
TIF Thoughts on what Masi had to say about Grosicki…
Given that they were set to sign him back in October, perhaps it wouldn’t be too surprising if Forest were to make a renewed attempt to sign Grosicki in January and the Reds’ second-tier rivals Middlesbrough are also reportedly weighing up a move for the 32-year-old.
With that in mind, it would certainly seem as though the winger’s lack of game time at The Hawthorns this term hasn’t resulted in the £2.16m-rated man’s stock diminishing too much.
At the end of last season, Grosicki was Hull City’s second-highest goalscorer (seven) and second-highest assist provider (four) in the league despite leaving the KCOM Stadium in January, so perhaps it’s understandable why he may be in demand for Championship clubs and with that in mind, surely Masi is right in saying that he will get his move when the transfer window re-opens.
