According to a report by Sport.Pl, Lech Poznan are plotting a new contract for reported Derby County and Blackburn Rovers target Kamil Jozwiak.

The Rams and Blackburn were linked with the Poland international in January.

A report by Polstat Sport claimed Poznan were willing to sell Jozwiak to raise funds. Derby, Blackburn and MLS Side Chicago Fire were cited with a potential £3 million bid.

Jozwiak, however, remained at Lech Poznan as the Polish club instead sold a teammate.

The speedy winger, 21, has been in excellent form this season. He has posted four goals and three assists in 20 league appearances, boosting his Poland chances.

Jozwiak is hoping to receive a call-up to the European Championships this summer.

With his contract expiring in the summer of 2021, Sport.PL now claim Poznan are looking to extend his deal as they want to protect themselves this coming summer.

The report adds the club will still look to cash in on him. However, with a longer contract, they feel they can pocket a higher fee from a top European club after Euro2020.

 

Derby must look at strengthening their wide options in the summer. Phillip Cocu’s side lacks pace, and they struggle without natural wingers at the club.

Blackburn, meanwhile, may be looking at Jozwiak to add more pace and directness to the side. Bradley Dack’s injury has also taken out a great attacking threat.

The reports, however, may force Derby and Blackburn to seek other targets this summer.
