Newcastle United would consider an offer in excess of £40 million for Allan Saint-Maximin, according to The Athletic.
Should such an offer arrive, the Magpies would mull over whether the funds would be better off reinvested into Eddie Howe’s plans to reshape their attack, however, there is no expectation that such a bid to be made for the Frenchman.
Tottenham managing director of football Fabio Paratici is said to be a fan of the Newcastle winger, with the North Londoners having already made an early move in the summer transfer window following the recruitment of Ivan Perisic after his contract at Inter Milan came to an end.
Football.London claimed last week that Paratici is weighing up a move for Saint-Maximin.
Newcastle are not exactly short of cash and will only entertain an offer if it is sizeable enough to be of benefit to them, it would seem unlikely that Spurs would be prepared to shell out a fee in excess of £40million for a winger when there are bigger recruitment priorities, such as a left-sided central defender, right wing-back and a creative midfielder.
