Jurgen Klopp is interested in signing winger Quincy Promes from Spartak Moscow, once the transfer window re-opens in January, according to The Mirror.

The charismatic German is concerned that his Liverpool side will be left short of attacking options once Sadio Mane leaves to compete in the Africa Cup of Nations, with Danny Ings already ruled out for the rest of the season with a knee injury.

Promes fits the profile of what Klopp looks for in a player, as he is capable of playing anywhere in the attacking third and uses his speed and technical ability to break down the opposition.

Having recently signed a contract tying him down to Spartak Moscow for another five years, the 24-year-old will not be available on the cheap for the Reds, who have been made aware of his £25 million price tag.

Promes started out his career in the Dutch Eredivise with FC Twente in 2012 and spent two years at the club, during which time he earned his first international call-up to the national team, making his Netherlands debut against France in March 2014.

Despite making just 34 appearances for Twente, Spartak Moscow were convinced of the player’s ability and parted with €15 million to bring the attacker to Russia.

In his two seasons with the club, Promes has gone on to feature 68 times for the Russian outfit, scoring an impressive 36 goals in the process.

Liverpool are not the only side to be interested in the Dutchman, though, with Premier League rivals Tottenham Hotspur also rumoured to be keen.
