Reports from the Netherlands claims former Ajax forward Quincy Promes will face prosecution on a charge of attempted manslaughter.
The Dutch international is accused of stabbing his cousin in the knee during an altercation at a family party in Abcoude, near Amsterdam, in 2020.
However, the 50-cap winger has denied the allegations and has been out on bail while remaining a suspect.
At the time of the incident, he played for Dutch side Ajax but has since joined Russia’s Spartak Moscow earlier this year.
If guilty, the 29-year-old could face a punishment of 24 to 42 months in jail, according to multiple reports.
Lawyer Yehudi Moszkowicz, a lawyer retained by the alleged victim, said: “The decision to sue Promes is the only right decision.
“After taking note of the file, we will also ask the Public Prosecution Service to prosecute the suspect for attempted manslaughter.
“If necessary, we will go to the Court for that.”
Promes missed Ajax training while under arrest and commented on the matter after returning to the pitch for the Amsterdam outfit in a 4-2 win over ADO Den Haag last year.
“It was a shock for everyone, but I am glad I was released so quickly,” he told Fox Sports.
“I can’t say more about it. I’m just as shocked as the rest of the world. It is something from my private life, I cannot say more about it.
“It feels good that people believe in me, that helps a lot. I don’t want to waste any more energy on peripheral matters.”
Promes made 50 appearances for Ajax before re-signing for Spartak Moscow in February this year.
The former Sevilla man has been capped 50 times for the Dutch national team and featured at the Euro 2020 tournament in the summer.
