Kamil Grosicki says it would be a dream to play in England amid rumours Sunderland have discussed a deal with his club Stade Rennais.
Black Cats boss Sam Allardyce is ready to target the top players in France’s Ligue 1 to bolster his squad this summer after having great success when signing Lamine Kone and Wahbi Khazri during the January transfer window.
Plenty of top talent in France is thought to be on Allardyce’s wishlist and it is now being claimed that Rennais winger Grosicki is a target for the Wearsiders.
The Poland international enjoyed a good season with the Red and Blacks, scoring nine times, and his performances earned him a contract extension through until the summer of 2019.
Despite his fresh terms, Sunderland have been in contact with Stade Rennais to discuss whether they would be interested in cashing in on Grosicki.
Southampton are also believed to be keen on the 27-year-old and Grosicki has now spoken of his desire to play in the Premier League.
“To play in the English league is the dream of every footballer,” said Grosicki. “To be there, you have to play well, have great managers, happiness. If I went there, I could tell that something was achieved in football.”
The winger went on to say that he would be happy to honour his newly extended contract with Rennais should Sunderland or Southampton fail to table an acceptable offer for his services.
