Arsenal want Ajax star Quincy Promes in £25m transfer to bolster Mikel Arteta's options up front

ARSENAL are eyeing a £25million move for Ajax ace Quincy Promes.

The Gunners were linked with the Dutch forward, 28, last year following some excellent displays.

Promes scored 16 goals and added five assists in 28 games before the coronavirus lockdown ended the Eredivisie season.

Liverpool have been hot on the trail of the winger in the past.

But Mikel Arteta, who has already moved for out of contract Brazilian Willian, is keen to bring Promes to North London and kickstart his summer transfer plans.

A source close to the player told SunSport: "Quincy would go in a heartbeat.

"It would be a great move for him – and Arsenal.”
