Arsenal interested in signing £25 million Dutchman who would ‘move in a heartbeat’
Arsenal are eyeing a £25million move for Ajax ace Quincy Promes, who would jump at the chance of a move to the Emirates.
We all know that Mikel Arteta is a boss that wants to put his own stamp on this Arsenal side, wants to buy players that he wants, and needs to get this club back challenging for a top four spot next season.
And we also know that he is reportedly keen to improve the attack during the course of this transfer window, especially with all the speculation linking a number of players with a move away from the Emirates.
Now reports on the SUN have claimed that Arsenal are now eyeing a £25 million deal to try and bring Promes to the Premier League this summer, after continuing to monitor his performances this season.
The Gunners were linked with the Dutch forward, 28, last year following some excellent displays, but a move never materialised as the Gunners felt they have enough quality to challenge for Champions League footballl.
Promes scored 16 goals and added five assists in 28 games before the coronavirus lockdown ended the Eredivisie season, and the reports claim Mikel Arteta is keen to bring Promes to North London and kickstart his summer transfer plans.
And the Sun go on to say that Promes would jump at the opportunity to make the move to London, A source close to the player told SunSport: “Quincy would go in a heartbeat.
“It would be a great move for him – and Arsenal.”
Promes had a very good season last year, but he is not the right type of player that Arsenal need to sign this summer, so if this rumour is true, hopefully the Gunners will not be signing this man to help improve their chances next season.
