Middlesbrough did not make any Deadline Day transfers on Thursday, although it was not because they were not trying to.
Tony Pulis was keen to add a winger to his side as they look to continue their push for promotion to the Premier League.
And, according to a report by The Northern Echo, Hull City’s Kamil Grosicki was one of their targets that they failed to get over the line.
It is claimed The Tigers wanted a fee of around £8million or for the club to send some of their players in exchange for the Poland international.
Boro have struggled to find the back of the net and felt the 30-year-old would have been the ideal man to help them improve in the final third.
Grosicki has four goals to his name so far, plus six assists, in his 22 Championship appearances.
Pulis and Middlesbrough will have been frustrated that they were unable to bring in any players on the final day of the January transfer window.
Grosicki is a talented individual and has been impressive this season in the Championship and may have been the man to have helped Boro improve.
However, Pulis will now need to hope Rajiv Van la Parra and John Obi Mikel will be the additions to make a difference to their season.
