Three reasons West Ham should hijack Roma’s bid to sign Grzegorz Krychowiak

According to reports by Italian media outlet Corriere dello Sport, AS Roma are ready to offer Grzegorz Krychowiak an escape route from what has been a disappointing loan spell with West Bromwich Albion this term.

The 27-year-old joined the Baggies on a season-long loan deal from Paris Saint-Germain towards the end of the summer transfer window, but he has struggled to make a big impression with the struggling west Midlands outfit.

With the manager that brought him to the Hawthorns – Tony Pulis – being sacked and replaced by Alan Pardew, the Poland international’s future is up in the air with the new boss ready to send him back to PSG in order to free up space to bring a new player in this month, according to talkSPORT.

Corriere dello Sport says that Roma are ready to bring him to Serie A if the loan is ended early, with the player keen to find some form before the World Cup in Russia this summer.

Meanwhile, West Ham United were heavily linked with a move for the defensive midfielder during the summer, but it was reported that former manager Slaven Bilic turned down the opportunity to sign the Pole in favour of trying to bring William Carvalho to the London Stadium.

That deal never materialised though and his successor David Moyes will be keen to strengthen his Irons team this month, and bringing Krychowiak to the capital could prove to be a shrewd move.
