Allan Saint-Maximin reportedly knows that he could now leave Newcastle United, with as many as three clubs in the Premier League interested in signing him.
The Lowdown: Saint-Maximin shining light
While the St. James’ Park faithful have had a poor start to the season in the top flight – they currently sit just outside of the drop zone in 17th spot with a mere three points and no wins from their first six games (Premier League) – Saint-Maximin has been the one shining light.
Would Saint-Maximin leave if the Newcastle takeover is not completed?
Described as a ‘nightmare’ for defenders by Gary Neville after a very impressive display in their 1-1 draw at home to Leeds United earlier this month, the winger has two goals and three assists in the division so far this term (Transfermarkt).
The Latest: Attracting interest
As per Calciomercato, Saint-Maximin’s start to the campaign has attracted interest, and the player himself now knows that he can ‘count on the approval’ of Everton, Liverpool and Chelsea.
However, the outlet say the Frenchman ‘should not be sacrificed’ in the January transfer window, but may still leave next summer.
The Verdict: Sell at right price
The North East club should only consider selling Saint-Maximin for the right price, especially to a direct rival in the Premier League.
He has shown so many times just how important he is to the team, and at 24 years of age, his market value will only get bigger with a whopping five years left on his contract.
Nonetheless, the Tyneside outfit need to keep him focused this campaign for now in order to get them climbing up the table.
