EPL: Arteta seeks to capture £25m-rateed Ajax star


English Premier League club, Arsenal manager, Mikel Arteta is displaying a level of ambition as he is yet linked with another forward to bolster his forward ahead of next season.

The North London outfit are reportedly set to part ways with French striker Alexandre Lacazette and Mikel Arteta will not stop such a move but that will not happen without him getting a replacement.

Ajax forward, Quincy Promes is the man that has been identified by the Spanish manager to make the difference at the Emirates Stadium if the former Lyon striker leaves.

However, the Gunners will have to spend £25 million to be able to capture the signature of Quincy Promes as he is the club will be willing to let him go but for a fee that is not cheaper than that.

Quincy Promes scored 16 goals in the just-concluded season before the coronavirus pandemic halted football activities as well as gave five assists in 28 games.

The Sun reports that Arteta is keen to bring in Quincy Promes with sources close to the player expressing confidence that he is willing and ready to dump Ajax for a move to the Emirates Stadium before the end of this summer transfer window.
