Hull City are set to stand firm over negotiations for winger Kamil Grosicki and have put a £4 million price tag on the 31-year-old, according to the Hull Daily Mail.
The Polish winger scored nine goals and provided 12 assists in the Championship last season, helping Hull to a 12th-place finish.
Despite having just one year left on his contract, it is understood that new boss Grant McCann is under no pressure from the club to shift him this summer.
The club have reportedly indicated it will take a £4 million offer to secure his services this summer, here our FLW writers assess if that is a fair price for the 31-year-old…
“I think £4 million is an absolute bargain for a player of Grosicki’s quality and Hull City should demand that or more if they are to be persuaded to sell him this summer.
“Obviously Jarrod Bowen got a lot of the praise for Hull last season and rightly so, but Grosicki was an extremely influential player too and his contribution to the team should not be underestimated.
“The winger has also got plenty of experience in the Championship and is a regular international with Poland, one of the better sides in Europe.
“He’s a fantastic player, with great technical ability who can both create and score goals.
“I think he’s more than good enough to play for one of the top teams in the Championship and it would be a real blow for Hull if they were to lose him this summer”
“Grosicki is a very good footballer and at other times in his career he probably could have gone for more given the talent that he has.
“He only has a year left on his deal and so that obviously tempers how much the Tigers can realistically ask for whilst his age is also an obvious factor in the valuation of him.
“Now over 30, his resell value is only going to decrease for any club that signs him but for £4 million plenty of teams are going to be willing to part with that cash and take a hit further down the line.
“Certainly, both Boro and Forest can afford that so why not just roll the dice and get him in?
“I was always a bit surprised a Premier League side didn’t come in for him when the Tigers were relegated a couple of years ago and anyone that gets him, I think, will have a real star on their hands.”
“I think it’s just about right.
“Grosicki is a fantastic asset to have in the Championship, his direct, tricky dribbling ability makes him a real menace for opposition defences.
“However, you have to consider that the Polish international is now 31 years of age and he isn’t getting any younger, so anything over £5 million would be pushing it in my opinion, because realistically he only has a handful of seasons left playing at his optimum level.
“Though, Grosicki has the qualities to ply his trade comfortably in the Premier League, and at £4m, he could prove a snip for a lower end top-flight side, at the same time, he could be a real coup for a promotion-chasing Championship team, who need an injection of quality down the flanks.”
