Sky Sports are reporting that Promes is keen on a move to the Premier League side, but that Spartak Moscow want £30 million for the Dutch international.

Speaking at a press conference on Thursday, Pellegrino confirmed that they were waiting to hear back from the Russian side. He said on whether he was confident about signing Promes, “I don’t know. We are waiting for an answer.

“We have got another five or six days to keep working and pushing, but we will see.

“He is an important player. There are a lot of players that I would like to bring in but he is one of the players that we are looking for.

“We have followed him many times and it is one possibility. We will be pushing until the end but we know that the market is not easy.”

Promes has scored 53 goals in 101 Russian Premier League games. He led Spartak Moscow to the league title last season and has a contract until 2021.
