Transfer News: Tottenham Hotspur want Allan Saint-Maximin in the following summer window 

According to transfer news on Football.London, Tottenham Hotspur are considering a summer move for Newcastle United winger Allan Saint-Maximin.

During his three seasons at St James’ Park, the 25-year-old has established himself as an important figure, frequently providing the Toons with the needed spark with his quickness and directness on the ball.

According to football.london, Spurs have surfaced as a possible destination for Saint-Maximin in the coming weeks, with sports director Fabio Paratici thought to be a major fan of the winger.

The article does not state whether or not discussions have commenced with either the club or the player, but it does state that North London is interested. And that in itself comes as good news for Spurs fans that have been mesmerised by the ex-Nice winger.

If Saint-Maximin joins Antonio Conte’s side, he’ll be battling for a spot in the front three alongside the likes of Son Heung-min, Dejan Kulusevski, and Ivan Perisic.

He is more than capable of sealing a spot in our starting XI but battling the South Korean star and the in-form Swede winger would be a challenge like no other for him.

ASM to Spurs?

Spurs will also compete in the UEFA Champions League, with Conte seeking to win the competition. More additions will be required, with boosting his attacking options appearing to be one of the tasks on his list.

In the second part of last season, the trio of Harry Kane, Son Heung-min, and Dejan Kulusevski terrorised defences. When called upon to slot into the front three, though, Steven Bergwijn and Lucas Moura struggled to make an impression.

Perisic will provide additional offensive energy, although he’ll likely play as a left wing-back. Conte will have to trust his choices in coming in to deal with the increased number of games with the advent of Champions League football next season.

Last season, the 25-year-old helped Newcastle avoid relegation by scoring five goals and contributing five assists. Newcastle’s new owners have huge aspirations for the club, and they intend to compete for a top-four finish in the future.

But it remains to be seen if the Frenchman has the time to wait around for the Magpies to become a force in Europe. Bryan Gil is set to return from loan this summer while Bergwijn, if kept at N17, is a valuable asset off the bench.

Hence, missing out on Saint-Maximin won’t be the end of the world. But if we get him in, he would add depth and quality to our wings.
