Reported Derby County and Blackburn Rovers target Kamil Jozwiak has won Poland’s young Player of the Month award for February after a string of fine displays.
The Poland international was linked with a Lech Poznan exit in January.
According to Polstat Sport, Derby and Blackburn were keen on a £3 million deal.
Lech Poznan at the time were considering a sale to raise funds. However, Jozwiak remained while his teammate Darko Jevtic instead moved on to Rubin Kazan.
Jozwiak, 21, has been in excellent form this season. He has posted six goals and three assists in 24 league games as Poznan chase the Polish title.
His form earned the winger a new contract last month, extending until 2022.
Sport.pl claim Lech Poznan still have the intentions to sell Jozwiak this summer. They hope, however, a strong performance at the upcoming 2020 European Championships will prompt a scramble for his signature and a higher selling fee.
Derby and Blackburn may now face a greater battle to sign him.
The Rams in particular must strengthen their wide options this summer. Jason Knight, Tom Lawrence and Duane Holmes are all arguably better in central roles.
Derby lack natural width. Moreover, Phillip Cocu’s side lacks pace, trickery and directness – three attributes Poland international Jozwiak has in abundance.
