Reliable journalist Lee Ryder of The Chronicle has now weighed in on Tottenham Hotspur and their ‘real’ interest in Newcastle United star Allan Saint-Maximin.
The Lowdown: Spurs’ summer overhaul…
Spurs could yet be busy towards the end of the summer transfer window after completing six major signings already for Antonio Conte.
It is believed that sporting director Fabio Paratici remains in the market for a creative midfielder and could yet target another defender despite the arrival of Barcelona’s Clement Lenglet on loan.
The Latest: Ryder backs Saint-Maximin interest…
Tottenham’s interest in the exciting Frenchman has now been backed by a reliable source in Ryder of The Chronicle.
The Newcastle correspondent claims that Paratici’s interest in Saint-Maximin is ‘real’, with the north Londoners having sent senior talent spotters to keep watch on the 25-year-old over the last few months.
The Verdict: Advance?
While Ryder states that it is solely interest from Spurs for now, we believe that it is a no-brainer for Paratici and co to at least consider opening talks.
Saint-Maximin can be truly devastating on his day, as backed by his numbers from 2021/22, with the winger completing more successful take-ons than any of his team-mates (WhoScored).
