Everton boss Ronald Koeman is interested in bringing Poland winger Kamil Grosicki to Goodison Park this summer, according to reports on Merseyside.
The new Blues manager is a fan of the Rennes wideman and had lined him up as a potential replacement for Sadio Mane, had he remained at Southampton over the summer.
Grosicki plays his club football with Rennes in France’s Ligue 1 and the Liverpool Echo believes he would likely cost Everton in the region of £10million.
The speedy attacker has been tracked for some time by Koeman, who is keen to inject pace into his forward line.
Grosicki, 28, is right-footed but has been playing on the opposite flank for Poland during the Euros in France, where he has helped his country reach the quarter-finals.
Reports in his homeland have claimed that the player’s agent has opened talks with Everton over a move but this remains unconfirmed.
Grosicki started his career in Poland before moving to Turkey in 2011 to play for Sivasspor.
In January, 2014, the winger signed for Rennes for whom he scored nine times last season.
Grosicki is expected to start for Poland against Portugal in Thursday night’s quarter-final (8pm) in Marseille.
