Derby looking at Poland winger to boost attack

Derby County are said to be interested in signing the Polish international winger Kamil Jozwiak, according to reports. 

The winger is currently playing in the Polish first division for Lech Poznan and could be the answer to Derby’s poor offensive form this year.

According to Polstat Sport, the attacker is on the radar at Pride Park as well as Ewood Park – where Blackburn Rovers have also expressed an interest in signing the Poznan man.

Derby are yet to spend in January despite the club offering Phillip Cocu the finances to bolster his attack.

However, the club have seen the arrival of Wayne Rooney – after the all time England top-scorer made his Derby debut against Barnsley earlier in the month.

Cocu’s men have got off to an impressive start to 2020, much to the credit of the club’s new midfield maestro Rooney.

The Rams remain unbeaten this year, moving them away from the Championship trap door.



Rooney has added depth to Derby’s offensive game but the report suggests that the club could be looking to bring in a winger to boost their attack furthermore.

Jozwiak is on the transfer market and Polstat claim the winger will have a choice of Championship clubs – with Derby County and Blackburn leading the race for the winger’s signature.

Derby midfielder Krystian Bielik is a very close friend of Jozwiak, both playing together for Poland’s youth teams – a factor which may give the Rams the edge over Blackburn.

Jozwiak is not in the best of form for Poznan this season, scoring four goals in 21 appearances but at such a young age, the winger is certainly a prospect.

The youngster was capped last season for Poland but has since become a fringe player this season.

Jozwiak will be looking at earning a place in the Polish side at the Euro’s – a move to Derby may just get him back in contention for the national side.
