It has emerged that Hull City face a summer battle to cling on to one of their star men with interest surfacing from the Turkish league, according to Polish outfit Sport.PL.
Kamil Grosicki has made 39 appearances on the Tigers’ wing this season, being involved in 21 goals as Nigel Adkins’ side recorded a 13th-placed finish.
The Polish international initially joined Hull to boost their Premier League relegation battle in 2017, but he has stayed on with the club for their two seasons in the Championship.
Grosicki has played a role in every league match since September, and he was one of the Tigers’ most creative outlets as they embarked on a six-game winning run over the Christmas period.
But it appears the 30-year-old could now be on the move this summer, with reports suggesting that Istanbul Basaksehir are interested in his services.
Basaksehir, who currently have the likes of Emmanuel Adebayor and Demba Ba in their ranks, are second in the Super Lig table and could secure a Champions League spot next season if they win two of their three remaining games.
Grosicki has one year to run on his deal at KCOM Stadium, so Hull could view this as an opportunity to cash in on one of their assets if the interest materialises.
It would be a blow for Hull to lose Grosicki, but they must be realistic about the situation.
He is unlikely to extend his Hull contract beyond next season, so it could now be a good time for the Tigers to generate funds from his sale which they can re-invest in long-term signings.
Grosicki has delivered a solid contribution for Hull this season, but they could do with something of a fresh look if they are to launch a more meaningful play-off challenge next season.
