Everton have held talks with Hull City winger Kamil Grosicki, according to Polish outlet Przeglad Sportowy.

With six signings already secured this summer, Ronald Koeman is keen to continue adding to his squad ahead of what should be a busy campaign.

Improving his forward options is likely to be a priority, with the current squad currently lacking, especially when it comes to wide players.

He does have Aaron Lennon and Kevin Mirallas at his disposal but with Yannick Bolasie still out injured and Ross Barkley joining him on the treatment table with a groin injury, options are limited.

That has apparently led to the Blues holding talks with Hull City winger Kamil Grosicki, a man who was tenuously linked with a move to Goodison Park last summer during Euro 2016.

According to Przeglad Sportowy, the Blues have spoken with Grosicki and his representatives about a potential switch to Merseyside.

However, a move is unlikely to happen anytime soon, with the club having informed him that securing a central defender and another striker is a higher priority for them at this moment in time.

The report insists Koeman is keen, though, claiming the Dutchman wanted the Poland winger when he was still at Southampton.

He faces a fight if he wants him this summer, with Watford, currently managed by Marco Silva, who brought Grosicki to England in January.

The problem is, it’s hard to imagine that the interest in Grosicki from Everton is strong. The player has hardly had an inspiring career, with just 13 goals in five years to his name, and was mostly average with Hull last season.

Koeman and Everton have been ambitious in their moves this summer and Grosicki would not match that in the slightest. In fact, they already have better options in Kevin Mirallas and the aforementioned Aaron Lennon.
