18 goals and 8 assists: Tottenham launch move for prolifc attacker amid contract stalemate - report
By London correspondent Tony Hughes
Tottenham have been alerted to a contract stalemate between Quincy Promes and his club Spartak Moscow, according to a report.
The Holland winger has been a key figure for the Russian club since his move from FC Twente in 2014.
However, the Daily Mail claim Promes is ready to quit Spartak this summer after failing to agree terms on a new contract.
It said that Spurs have enquired about the availability of the 24-year-old after keeping close tabs on him with regular scouting checks.
The player has another two years to run on his Spartak deal.

Promes, who cost £11million when he moved to Spartak, scored 18 goals and supplied five assists in 30 league matches this season, adding another three assists in cup competitions.
He played for Holland against the Republic of Ireland under the watchful eyes of Mauricio Pochettino and his staff 10 days ago, along with other Spurs Dutch targets including midfielder Riechedly Bazoer and striker Vincent Janssen.
Pochettino was pictured in the stands at Dublin next to Pat Dolan, the agent of Republic and Southampton striker Shane Long, which immediately sparked speculation of a swoop for the in-form 29-year-old.
In other Tottenham transfer news, the club are preparing to sign four players this summer using a unique initiative.
