Hull City’s Kamil Grosicki could be closer to leaving as the club have set an asking price for his services, according to the Hull Daily Mail.
That has led the club to demand £4m for his services, which may be a ploy to deter interest in the winger given that at 31 and with a year left on his contract there will be few clubs interested in paying that figure.
He has been an influential player for The Tigers since signing in 2017 and new boss Grant McCann will be keen to retain his best players, particularly as Grosicki will be key to providing service to new signing Tom Eaves.
According to HITC via The Sun, Forest were believed to be preparing a £2.5m bid, but given the change in manager and the increase in asking price it is possible that they may end their interest.
This is good news for Hull fans, Grosicki was a key player last season and the stance taken by the club means it is unlikely he will leave, and even if he does there should be enough money to bring in an adequate replacement.
The player seems happy to play for the club despite the speculation, which is a sign that squad harmony is good and the club is moving in the right direction under the new manager.
Grosicki was the joint second-highest in terms of assists in the Championship last season and was pivotal in getting the best out of Jarrod Bowen, and next season he should link up well with the likes of Bowen and Eaves.
