Chris Hughton admits he “doesn’t know” whether Nottingham Forest will reignite interest in Kamil Grosicki as the January transfer window looms.
Hughton looked to add Grosicki to his squad back in October, with the winger falling out of favour at West Bromwich Albion in wake of their return to the Premier League.
Despite agreeing a deal to sign Grosicki on the final day of the transfer window, the paperwork was submitted to the EFL slightly late, and Forest missed out on the signing.
Since his failed move to the City Ground, Grosicki is yet to make an appearance for West Brom. His only involvement under Slaven Bilic this season came against Harrogate Town in the Carabao Cup back in September.
The 32-year-old’s contract at the Hawthorns expires at the end of the season, and it remains to be seen what lies in store for him in January.
Speaking to Nottinghamshire Live following his side’s 2-1 defeat to Norwich City on Wednesday night, Hughton opened up on the potential signing of Grosicki.
He said “Possibly. But I must admit, I don’t know. I don’t know if any of the circumstances have changed with him.
“Obviously it didn’t happen last time. At this moment, I honestly couldn’t tell you.”
It’s hard to tell where Forest need to strengthen in January, but the addition of a new left-sided winger perhaps wouldn’t go amiss.
They lack an out-and-out left-sided winger aside from Sammy Ameobi, and I think it would be important to that add balance to the squad going forward.
Grosicki is the type of player who can get fans out of their seats, and he could be the answer as Forest look to solve their goalscoring woes and their inability to create clear-cut chances.
