Newcastle United are interested in signing Hull City winger Kamil Grosicki, but they face competition from Watford, according to Polish publication Sportowe Fatky.
Rafael Benitez is looking to boost his squad in order to give Newcastle a competitive chance in the Premier League.
Grosicki is believed to be a target and he could be available at a cut price due to a reported release clause that can be triggered due to Hull’s relegation to the Championship.
The Chronicle has reported Sportowe Fatky’s claims that the Magpies are prepared to swoop for Grosicki, but that Marco Silva, who recently left Hull to take over at Watford, wants the winger at Vicarage Road.
Given that the North-East outfit can offer Premier League football then they already have a tick in the right box, but Watford can do the same and they have a major advantage.
Grosicki was brought to the top flight by Silva in an £8m deal from Rennes in January, and he went on to create three assists in 15 outings.
Having already played under Silva, Watford have the obvious edge over Newcastle.
If the North-East outfit fail in their pursuit, they could be missing out on a bargain as Grosicki has the ability to play on either wing and has proven that he can adapt quickly to the Premier League.
The 28-year-old also has plenty of experience having been capped by Poland 50 times.
