Quincy Promes made his first team debut for his final youth team Twente in 2012 at the ages of 19. The youngster was loaned out to Go Ahead Eagles for the 2012-13 season where he impressed with 13 goals in 32 appearances for the club. His goals helped the club to promotion for the first time in 18 years. His work ethic and performances were instantly recognised by his parent-club who played him in 34 games over the course of the 2013-14 season where he again got his goal scoring into double digits with 11 goals. Spartak Moscow came calling and Twente cashed in on the now 22-year-old. Scoring comes naturally to the young Dutchman as he has a goal in every 2 games from playing out wide with 37 goals in 73 games. 6 of those have come in 15 games within this current Russian Premier League Season
The Reliability of the Source is something that is imperative when looking at these rumours and the rumour was first found on Liverpool’s leading newspaper; The Echo. The Echo’s credibility has always been a high amongst Liverpool supporters as they would not want to spread false claims due to the risk of severing ties with one of the clubs they are covering. People like James Pearce and Neil Jones, both highly respected journalists, have written various pieces on why he would be a fit for Liverpool which is not something that they do unless they fully believed something was in the pipelines.
There have been no leaks or rumours regarding a potential price tag for the Dutch winger but TransferMarkt value the player at £15.3m as of 27th December 2016. For a young winger who is still to reach the prime years of his career, this seems to be a very fair price especially as his nationality would allow for him to eligible to play throughout the season and have no mid-season tournaments to be involved in apart from for Liverpool. Chances of him signing for Liverpool could be very high as Gini Wijnaldum (international teammate) could convince him and Spartak Moscow recently acquired Luiz Adriano so it would make sense for them to be expecting Promes to leave soon.
His position on the pitch would make him an instant fit for Liverpool as Wingers are something that Liverpool lack especially now with Mane leaving for AFCON duties with Senegal. He is almost like for like for Mane and Mane had an instant impact for Liverpool.
Personally, I think we should sign him as he is something that Liverpool need and can reach for higher goals than the Russian League, no disrespect intended of course. His ceiling is very high and Jürgen Klopp could be the man to help Promes reach his potential.
