A source in Sports Entertainment Group today is reporting that Newcastle are interested in one of Spartak Moscow’s top stars, Dutchman Quincy Promes.
Promes has played 25 times with 4 goals for the Netherlands, and he is a winger born in Amsterdam.
He has played for Spartak Moscow since back in 2014, and two other clubs are said to be interested in the player – Roma and Tottenham.
All three clubs are reported to have already made contact with Spartak Moscow about the Dutch international.
He’s valued at around £25M, but if Rafa is to bring in some class to Newcastle this summer, then Newcastle have to be prepared to pay the going price for top players.
Promes was the top scorer in the Russian Premier League this season with 15 goals and 8 assists.
In all competitions this season he’s scored 21 goals and 10 assists in 38 appearances.
Spartak Moscow finished 3rd in the Russian Premier League behind winners Lokomotiv Moscow and CSKA Moscow and did not get a direct entry into the group stage of the Champions League.
They are expected to have a clearout, and it seems that Quincy Promes will be one of the players allowed to leave the club, probably because they can get decent money for him.
Newcastle will be looking to bring in who can score goals and Promes appears to be a decent target.
Liverpool were after Promes last summer, but nothing came of it.
