Use with futur proche or future simple

Use with futur proche or future simple

Can this structure be used with futur proche? (is this considered a compound tense?)

Eg. We are only going to buy one toy. ——> Nous n’allons que acheter un jouet.

Or do we use futur simple (this is a simple tense?) ——> Nous n'achèterons qu'un jouet.

iI Uber,

I would say -

Nous n'allons acheter qu'un jouet  = We are only going to buy one toy 

and 

Nous n'achètrerons qu'un jouet = We'll only buy one toy

Hope this helps!

Both examples are grammatically correct (just note that it is "qu'acheter" instead of "que acheter")
