Arsenal are targeting a move for Ajax winger Quincy Promes, according to reports.

The Gunners are already closing in on a deal to sign Willian on a free transfer from Chelsea.

But Mikel Arteta is looking to bolster his attacking options even further in the transfer window.

And according to The Sun, Arteta is keen to bring Promes to the Emirates Stadium this summer.

The 28-year-old moved to Ajax from Sevilla for £14 million last summer and scored 16 goals in his debut campaign for the Dutch club.

Promes typically plays on the left flank, which means his arrival at Arsenal would allow Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang to move into his favoured central role.

The Sun’s report also claims that Promes would jump at the opportunity to join Arsenal this summer.

‘Quincy would go in a heartbeat,’ a source close to the player told The Sun.

‘It would be a great move for him and Arsenal.’

Promes, who has 42 caps for the Netherlands, has previously been linked with a move to Liverpool.
