According to the Daily Mail, Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino has been watching Netherlands winger Quincy Promes for a possible move to White Hart Lane.

Spurs need attacking reinforcements this summer, and whilst fans are keen to see another striker brought in to offer cover and competition for Harry Kane, pace out wide may also be needed.

Erik Lamela improved this past season, but neither Son Heung-min nor Nacer Chadli were able to nail down a regular spot in the first team, and supporters want to see an injection of pace out wide, rather than a host of players who prefer to cut inside.

Now, the Daily Mail report that Tottenham have identified a player to fill that role, with Spartak Moscow winger Quincy Promes believed to be a target.

It's claimed that manager Mauricio Pochettino has been watching Promes in action, including his performance for the Netherlands against Ireland in Dublin last month - where Pochettino was spotted in the stands.

24-year-old Promes has earned quite the reputation in recent years, as he's hit 59 goals in the last four campaigns during spells with Twente, Go Ahead Eagles and Spartak, and scored 31 times in 60 games for the latter despite being a winger; a quite phenomenal record for the Dutchman.

That kind of record doesn't go unnoticed, and the report claims that Promes wants to leave Russia this summer having failed to agree a new contract, prompting interest from Spurs.

A pacey wide man who isn't afraid to take on defenders and shoot for goal, Promes could be just what Tottenham need on the right hand side of midfield, and we could see Pochettino move for him this summer if reports are to be believed.
