Why Kamil Grosicki Would Be A Decent Addition For Everton

According to reports from Polish Website Przeglad Sportowy, Everton are in negotiations with Hull City winger Kamil Grosicki over a potential summer move.

The Polish international joined the Tigers only in January earlier this year, but with the club going down back to the EFL Championship, he is keen on a move back to the Premier League and has reportedly turned down a move to Bundesliga side SC Freiburg in order to push through a move to the English top flight.

The Toffees are not the only side interested in signing him in the summer window, with Watford too monitoring his situation as the Hornets’ new boss Marco Silva is keen on working with the attacker again, after having brought him to Hull earlier this year. The report also claims that Grosicki was on current Everton boss Ronald Koeman’s radar back when the Dutchman was in charge at Southampton. Now that an opportunity has presented itself, he is keen on signing him ahead of next season.

The 29-year old well-travelled winger joined Hull in the winter window earlier this year from French club Stade Rennais after scoring 4 goals and 3 assists in 16 matches. He made a significant impact upon his arrival, finishing the season with 5 assists and no goals from 15 games for the Tigers.

Grosicki adapted fairly quickly to the English conditions and added an edge to the Hull City attack in the second-half of the season. He is fast, has good dribbling ability and is technically strong as well, that enables him to create chances and score on a regular basis. He has the ability to stretch defences wide by hugging the touchline and can cut in from the flanks to a great effect as well, making him a decent option to have in the ranks.

Everton are more than well equipped in the wide areas. With the likes of Yannick Bolasie, Kevin Mirallas, Dominic Calvert-Lewin, Ademola Lookman and Aaron Lennon in the ranks, Koeman does have enough options at his disposal. However, with Bolasie unlikely to be available before the new year, following his injury last season and Lennon’s recent issues off the field, adding more depth to the wings wouldn’t be the worst idea for the club.

Especially with the Toffees participating in the UEFA Europa League as well next season, they will be playing more games and having good solid options to fall back upon will only help the team do well. Grosicki will provide just that. He may not be the star attraction of the team, but he will chip in with valuable contributions and has the potential to be a valuable part of the squad. The Polish international may not turn out to be a regular in the first team, but he will be a reliable option to have in the ranks and has the ability to be a good squad player for the Merseysiders.
