Journalist Dean Jones has written in his column for GiveMeSport that Newcastle United could be open to selling Tottenham target Allan Saint-Maximin in the summer.
Saint-Maximin has not been a regular in Newcastle’s starting eleven this season, being used for the most part as an impact substitute by Eddie Howe.
The Sunday People (19/2, Page 62) reported last month that the pacy winger has been on Tottenham’s radar for ‘some time’ and that the North London club considered making a move for him in the January transfer window.
The report added that Antonio Conte’s men are expected to reignite their interest in the 25-year-old during the summer.
Jones has now revealed on GiveMeSport that the Magpies might be open to offloading Saint-Maximin amidst Tottenham’s interest.
The journalist explains that Newcastle are set for a major rebuild in the summer, with as many as five new signings expected to arrive through the door.
The St James’ Park outfit would thus have to offload some big hitters, with a departure for Saint-Maximin said to be ‘a real possibility’.
Spurs Web Opinion
Conte has spoken publicly about Tottenham lacking enough players who can carry the ball and beat their opponents in one vs one situations.
So, I have no doubt that the North London club will be in the market for a dribbler of the mould of Saint-Maximin or Wilfried Zaha in the summer.
