Report – Arsenal preparing to make a move for Ajax star

Arsenal is the latest team to show interest in Ajax’s Quincy Promes after the winger impressed for the Dutch side last season.

He was signed by the Eredivisie champions after a stint in Spain with Sevilla and he has continued to be in fine form.

He scored 16 goals for them before their league season was curtailed by the coronavirus pandemic.

Liverpool has tried to land him in the past but failed and Sun Sports claims that Arsenal might add him to the signing of Willian.

Willian is expected to join the Gunners after leaving Chelsea at the end of his deal.

The Gunners are expected to have a busy summer as they prepare to get back into the Premier League’s top four, and signing quality players is one way they can achieve that.

They have used Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang on the wing for much of the just-concluded season, however, signing Willian and Quincy Promes might see them move the Gabon striker centrally.

A source close to the player told Sun Sports: “Quincy would go in a heartbeat.

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

Ajax paid £14m to land him from Sevilla last summer. The Dutch side will want to make a good profit on his sale.

    I can only see this deal going
    through if Laca is sold to AM
    and MA feels as if Saka isnt quite
    ready to take that next step and
    Nelson is loaned back out. By
    deploying Willian in the middle
    and moving Auba back to his
    preferred CF position, MA may
    see a need for an experienced,
    pacy winger who has goals in
    his locker. Promes may be that
    guy.

    Auba
    QP…Wilian…Pepe
    Xhaka…Partey
    KT…Gabriel…Luiz(Saliba)…HB
    Leno(

      I’m not sure and have not read anywhere that the CF position is Auba’s favorite position.
      I don’t know why fans keep on with this “agenda” of moving Auba to the CF position.
      As commented by Grandad in a previous post, which I paraphrase…. ” why change something that is working?”

      Arsenal n Quincy n Winger n Eridivise sounds very familiar but not impressive.

    Saka will be benched often next season. Mark my word. He is too soft as a player. Did u notice our last three games he was on the bench. Arteta even preferred Niles at wing back to him. FA cup final he was on bench full time. Against Watford he was unused substitute, Against Man City as well.

    1. Jo-Gunz says:

      I seem to disagree with your reason (he is weak) for MA benching Saka. Will you say Martinelli is also weak that was why he saw more of the bench? No. Arteta is trying to manage his younger players by protecting them and taking unnecessary pressure off their shoulders.
      Saka and Martinelli will see more game time next season IMO. They are the future.

  4. The Deluded One says:

    @Emmaobi Arteta also said that some players were playing on painkillers due to injuries. Could he be one with an injury and therefore not being used as much?

    Otherwise, why would Arteta suddenly stop using him after having used him so much and Saka doing so well?

      yea mate.
      Trouble is alot of so called fans think that players because they earn so much money makes them immune to fatigue, injuries and form.
      They’re not machines and considering there was such a long lay off due to Corona and then only a very short period in which to get match fit and then play every 2 1/2 – 3 days.
      My hat goes off to all the players, not just at Arsenal but all clubs to do what they did to complete the season
