Promes open to English move

Ajax
Frank Lampard is confident Chelsea can get a result against Ajax on Wednesday despite being without a host of key players for the clash.

Ajax attacker Quincy Promes has revealed he would be interested in playing in the Premier League at some point in his career.

The former Sevilla star, who returned to Ajax last summer in a deal worth £14m, has been linked with moves to Liverpool and Arsenal after impressing for the Dutch champions where he started his career in the youth set-up.

Promes was amongst the scorers in Ajax’s thrilling 4-4 draw at Chelsea in the Champions League in midweek, giving Premier League scouts another opportunity to witness his talents up close.

The former Spartak Moscow and FC Twente talent has plenty of ambition going forward and has admitted that playing for a club in the Premier League could happen for him at some point.

“To me, if I have a chance, maybe in the future,” Promes told journalists when asked about potentially playing in the English top flight one day.

Promes has impressed so far this season, scoring 11 goals in 17 appearances in all competitions, and it’s no wonder interest from England’s top flight has emerged.

Both Liverpool and the Gunners have been linked but the likes of Tottenham and Manchester United are also likely to be keeping tabs on the 27-year-old.

With Promes having a contract until 2024, Ajax would want a sizeable fee if they were to allow another one of their prize assets to move on to pastures new anytime soon.
