Remember Marcin Kaminski? He is the 24-year-old Polish center back set to leave Lech Poznan this summer for...well, his next stop is the subject of increasing speculation.
@canetop Marcin Kaminski has an offer from Trabzonspor as well now. 3 years&big money. Supposedly his biggest offer unless MLS comes in high— Alex Fydryszewski (@AFydryszewski) May 27, 2016
@canetop Gijon,Karlsruhe,Trabzonspor,Braunschweig,NEC,Maccabi all in for Kaminski...He is on vacation and won't let on where hes heading.— Alex Fydryszewski (@AFydryszewski) May 27, 2016
The rumor mill is very fond of Mr. Kaminski. (And thanks to Alex Fydryszewski for keeping Once A Metro informed.)
The notion he might be on the New York Red Bulls' transfer market radar was (and is) largely based on the club's seemingly ceaseless need for fit, competent center backs this season. But RBNY has now posted three consecutive clean-sheet wins in MLS and it would appear the team's immediate CB needs have largely been settled by the arrival of Aurelien Collin.
So it seems safe to say Kaminski isn't heading toward RBNY (and it was probably safe to say that when this rumor first sprang up), or even to another MLS club.
Braunschweiger Zeitung reports 2. Bundesliga's Eintracht Braunschweig might be the front runner in the race to sign the young CB. Meanwhile, the Turkish press remains confident Kaminski's preference is to play for Trabzonspor.
Rumors of MLS interest have almost vanished entirely.
