Liverpool are planning to bring Ajax striker Quincy Promes to the Anfield, according to Sport, although Eredivisie team are supposedly going to demand £33.5 million for the player they only bought last summer.
Chelsea are also said to be fans of the jet-heeled winger who has been reborn at Ajax after a forgettable spell at Sevilla. In all competitions, Promes has produced 15 goals for the reigning Eredivisie champions, including a trademark back-post tap-in during November’s thrilling 4-4 draw at Stamford Bridge.
The former FC Twente star appeared to catch Frank Lampard’s eye that night in West London, though coaching counterpart Jurgen Klopp has been aware of his considerable talents for some time.
Promes is like Sadio Mane. He can shoot very quick and is a proper striker,” the charismatic German told The Guardian.
Unfortunately for Promes, a summer move to Anfield would see him stuck behind Mane in the pecking order.
