Premier League giants ‘interested’ in Newcastle star Allan Saint-Maximin
Liverpool and Chelsea are said to be ‘interested’ in acquiring Newcastle star Allan St-Maximin and are ready to place offers for the 24-year-old in January.
It depends a report from the Italian publication CalcioMercato, which suggests that Thomas Tuchel and Jurgen Klopp were impressed with the Frenchman’s start to the new season and think he could add some magic to their offense.
The report also claims that Everton is keen to secure St-Maximin’s services.
Since arriving in the North East in 2019, St-Maximin has been arguably Newcastle’s most exciting player, scoring 9 goals and registering 14 assists in 63 appearances across all competitions. It looks like this campaign is his best in a black and white jersey, with the former Nice winger having scored twice and assisted three times in The Toon’s opening six games.
Rumors about the future of St-Maximin have been raging in recent months, with rumors of a split with manager Steve Bruce boosting their volume. However, the latter has denied that relations between the two are strained and prays that the club can take their precious asset forward.
“Well, when he walked through the door I said he was going to pull you all out of your seats, that he would be a favorite,” the Magpies boss told reporters, as quoted by The Chronicle. “He’s playing as well as anyone in the Premier League right now and when he plays like that it’s a pleasure to watch.
“I’ve always had a good relationship with him. He’s a great boy and the only thing I like about him is that he loves football more than anyone else. That’s why he If you ask him for a result in any game in Spain or Italy, he will know, he will know the team and the rest.
“Hopefully he stays because he’s been a joy to watch this year and he’s improving which is the most important thing.”
While Bruce is correct that Saint-Maximin is wonderful to watch at St James’ Park, one can’t help but be excited that he is playing alongside Romelu Lukaku at Stamford Bridge and Mo Salah at Anfield.
