Kamil Grosicki’s situation at West Bromwich Albion is likely to be monitored closely by Nottingham Forest this month.
The winger came agonisingly close to signing for the Reds in the summer, but his move was rejected by the EFL after the paperwork was submitted 21 seconds after the transfer deadline.
Since then, he’s played only 10 minutes of Premier League football, and failed to make an impact in the FA Cup defeat to Blackpool at the weekend.
Grosicki has been spoken about by Chris Hughton of late, and it remains to be seen whether Forest reignite their interest in the 32-year-old this month.
The winger, though, ‘definitely’ won’t join Forest this month, according to Meczyki, with a return to Poland on the cards.
Grosicki doesn’t really represent a signing for the long-term, and there could be younger, and just as impactful signings out there for Forest to explore.
Here, we take a look at three alternatives Forest and Hughton should consider this month…
Dembele’s future at Peterborough United looks to be up in the air, with the winger recently handing in a transfer request at London Road.
The winger has scored six goals and registered five assists in all competitions this season, and is easily one of the most exciting players outside of the Championship.
A host of big clubs, such as Celtic and Rangers are after him, with Forest also being credited with an interest, and a young, exciting wide option like him could add real quality to the side.
German-born winger Baah has been catching the eye for Rochdale of late.
The 17-year-old produced a magnificent performance in the 4-4 draw with Charlton on Tuesday, scoring two goals for Brian Barry-Murphy’s side at the Valley.
He’s now scored three goals in his last four games for Dale, and is clearly a player with a lot of potential.
He’s still young and probably wouldn’t hit the ground running straight away, but he could be one Forest begin to look at.
If Forest want to stick to the West Brom theme, then Edwards could be of interest.
The 22-year-old has made only one start in the Premier League for West Brom this season, though, and has been left out of the last three matchday squads under Sam Allardyce.
He chipped in with two goals and one assist in 26 Championship appearances last season, and could well be an option for the Reds.
He needs regular game time, he is an exciting wide player and can take people on.
