Tottenham Hotspur have been linked with a move for the Newcastle United winger Allan Saint-Maximin.
The 25-year-old joined the Magpies back in 2019 and he has established himself as one of the most exciting attacking players in the league.
According to a report from the Northern Echo, Chelsea are keeping tabs on the player as well and both teams are currently ‘pondering a move’ for the French winger.
Meanwhile, a report from the Athletic claimed a few days ago that Spurs have already ‘made tentative enquiries’ for the Newcastle winger and it remains to be seen whether they decide to follow it up with a concrete offer.
Antonio Conte signed Richarlison from Everton earlier on in the summer and the Brazilian is a naturally left-sided forward. Although he is not a specialist winger, he is likely to play in a position Saint-Maximin usually operates in.
It would be quite difficult for Tottenham to accommodate both players in the starting line-up and therefore a move for the Newcastle star does not make sense at this moment.
Furthermore, the 25-year-old can be quite inconsistent and his end product is simply not good enough for a team hoping to challenge for the Premier League title. He picked up five goals and five assists across 35 Premier League appearances last season.
There is no doubt that the 25-year-old can be devastating on his day and he has plenty of room for improvement. Someone like Conte can totally transform his game, but that is a hypothetical scenario, and it seems unlikely that Tottenham will splash the cash on him anytime soon.
Dear Judge ..Wish you were here. We cannot afford someone playing in the mould on Modric..
Cocktails and a dip .. Tata..
She’s mine I tell you..
Mmm Newcastle are about to sell their game changer 2 weeks before kick off..lala land
FC Saudis don’t need to sell anyone, why would they sanction a move?
I’ve been “keeping tabs” on Adriana Lima for awhile and “pondering a move” for her now.
We seem always at the mercy of the hacks that invent these statements of intent from the powers that be at Spurs , same applies every where else I suppose.
There appears to be absolute conviction by some that St Maximim is the new RWB [or similar] to join Spence , Royal, Doherty , Moura , Kulu and anybody else who kicks with his right foot .[ Kulu exempt].
What is this weird obsession ?? We need an absolute midfield worldie , it aint James Maddison , someone in the mould of Luka Modric would be wonderful !
