Premier League Duo Keeping Tabs on Hull City Winger Ahead of Possible Summer Switch

Publish date:

​Everton and Watford are supposedly in the hunt to bring Hull City's Kamil Grosicki back to the Premier League this summer.

The top flight duo have been touted as potential destinations for the Poland international following the Tigers' demotion to the Championship, with Polish media outlet ​Przeglad Sportowy alleging that interest from the pair in Grosicki's services is high.

Everton were tentatively linked with a swoop for the forward last summer after his exploits at Euro 2016, while Watford are mooted as rivals for his signature due to the arrival of Marco Silva - his former boss at Hull - in Hertfordshire.


The Toffees, it is claimed, have already held talks with Grosicki's representatives about a move to England's top flight, but the chances of a switch to Goodison Park materialising are slim at best.

During the negotiations, Everton are said to have told the 27-year-old that he is not a priority signing for them at the moment with manager Ronald Koeman keen to add another striker and cover at centre-back before making any inroads in bringing Grosicki to Merseyside.

Koeman was keen on luring Grosicki to St.Mary's Stadium during his time in charge of Southampton, but any deal has been put on the back burner for the time being as he chases other targets to bolster his squad elsewhere.

Watford would be a much more viable alternative for Grosicki at this current time, and his six-month stint at Hull under Silva was a spell that worked out well for both despite the Tigers' relegation.

Whether Grosicki would be open to a move to Vicarage Road is hard to say, but if the former Rennes star harbours hopes of featuring at the 2018 World Cup in Russia - providing Poland qualify - he would be best plying his trade in a top league in Europe.

Grosicki notched five assists in 15 appearances for Hull last season, but failed to find the back of the net for the Humberside outfit.
