Everton would be strengthened by adding Kamil Grosicki

After every major tournament, there always seems to be a few players who boost their profiles within the footballing world. They get noticed a little more, especially if they play for an unfancied side and then someone swoops in to claim them for themselves.

One man who will already be on the shopping list of a few teams is Polish international Kamil Grosicki. He has been linked with a move to Everton once the European Championships end and it is a classic move for a player who shines in spots but at the same time, it is a move that would suit the Toffees' style of play.

The Rennes man is what many people would claim as a traditional winger. Quick with a strong ability to dribble with the ball at his feet, Grosicki always causes his opponent to back-peddle as he forces the issue by attacking them at pace.

That's clear from the amount of dribbles he's had in the two games at Euro 2016 he's featured most in. Both against Germany and Switzerland, the 28-year-old led anyone on the pitch in attempted dribbles, with five against the former and six against the latter.

His drive to attack defenders is what makes him such an attractive prospect to a team. Grosicki always looks like he wants to entertain and cause danger to the opposition, something that fans would love and would fit into the wing play already present at Goodison Park.

Grosicki has also impressed in Ligue 1, scoring nine goals and notching up three assists. The real positive that is missed from the modern wingers is their ability to get in the box when the ball is on the other side of the field but this isn't a problem with him, in fact, a lot of his goals come from that kind of position or from counter-attacks.

He would also fit a hole in new manager Ronald Koeman's tactics, where Sadio Mane would fill as a wide man that would attack the back line. With players like Ross Barkley able to feed him, Grosicki would be a helpful addition to a squad that struggled to rack up the goals outside of Romelu Lukaku.

While he can be a little inconsistent and a liability in defence, Grosicki would be a solid option for Everton to consider. He's regularly used off the bench for club and country, so there would be no concern that he would have a problem with that in the Premier League while adding to the quality of Koeman's squad.

They may also be able to convince Rennes to sell him at a reasonable price, in and around the £10 million mark, and he would prove to be a building block under the new regime.

The hope will be is that he can build on his performances in the Euros, rather than be too pleased with his move and stagnate like so many others before him.
