The Reds are said to be monitoring the Dutch international as Jurgen Klopp eyes reinforcements in January.
With Danny Ings sidelined for the season and Sadio Mane set to be unavailable due to international commitments for African Cup of Nations in the months of January and potentially February, Liverpool will be left a little short in terms of their attacking options in the new year.
As such, Jurgen Klopp has prioritized signing of a forward in the upcoming winter transfer window, with Borussia Dortmund’s Christian Pulisic, Rostov’s Sardar Azmoun and Rennes’ Paul-Georges Ntep all linked with a move to Liverpool.
Now, James Pearce of Liverpool Echo has claimed 24 year old Quincy Promes is on the radar of Liverpool, with a move in the January window a possibility.
The report suggests Jurgen Klopp is keen to bolster his front-line options in the January window, and the Netherlands international is among the players listed high on the wishlist.
Spartak Moscow are unlikely to agree to a loan deal for the player and Liverpool Echo states an offer in the region of £25 million should be enough to secure the player’s services.
Tottenhan Hotspur were linked with the Dutch winger in the summer, with Mauricio Pochettino said to be an admirer of the player. But the former Twente attacker ended up signing a new deal with the Russian club in August to extend his stay at Moscow until 2021.
Quincy Promes has scored 36 goals in 74 appearances for Spartak Moscow since joining them in summer of 2014 and has been particularly impressive this season with a return of five goals and five assists in 10 league appearances. His performance has helped the Moscow based club to top of the table with the club aiming to mount a title challenge this season.
It is no secret Liverpool will be in the market for a forward in the January window; and Quincy Promes’ pace, skillfulness and versatility does makes him an obvious fit for Jurgen Klopp’s playing system. Who knows, the Dutchman could potentially turn out to be an inspired buy for Liverpool as they aim to end their title drought.
