Poland manager Jerzy Brzęczek can see Kamil Grosicki quitting West Brom in the January transfer window amid a lack of game-time at The Hawthorns.
Grosicki, 32, hasn’t played for the Baggies since his one and only appearance this season in September, which came in the Carabao Cup win over Harrogate Town.
The Poland international hasn’t been included in any of Slaven Bilic’s matchday squads since that 55-minute-long appearance against the League Two club and came close to joining Nottingham Forest on deadline day.
However, that deal was blocked by the EFL as the paperwork was submitted after the deadline and Grosicki was added to Bilic’s Premier League squad.
The former Hull player remains out of the picture in the Black Country and Brzęczek sees him moving on in January in a bid to increase his game-time and improve his chances of making Poland’s squad for the European Championships next summer.
“Arkadiusz Milik and Kamil Grosicki are very important players of this team with incredible quality,” said Brzęczek, as quoted by Italian news outlet Il Mattino.
“Personally, I count a lot on them. They are not having an easy time today, but I think they can change teams as early as January.”
A lot of West Brom fans want to see Grosicki get more game-time than he’s currently being handed by Bilic.
Grosicki can play on both wings but his preferred role seems to be on the left as he’s right-footed likes to cut inside from the wide positions.
But Bilic has a lot of players above him in the pecking order right now with Grady Diangana, Matheus Pereira, Callum Robinson, Matt Phillips and Kyle Edwards being more involved than the Polish speedster.
If Bilic isn’t going to play Grosicki then it would be a shock if the player looks to quit.
If he does, there will be positives as it could raise some transfer funds and get a £25,000-a-week [Spotrac] player off the wage bill.
