Tottenham Hotspur must fork out £40million for Newcastle star Allan Saint-Maximin

According to The Athletic (Subscription Required), Tottenham Hotspur will need to fork out £40million for Newcastle United star Allan Saint-Maximin.

The 25-year-old Frenchman joined the Magpies from Ligue 1 side OGC Nice in the summer of 2019. He has since developed into a key player for the Toon and is arguably their most dynamic presence in attack.

He played a key role in their fight against relegation last season and that has caught the attention of both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspur. Newcastle, for their part, are ready for a sale but are demanding a hefty transfer fee.

Tottenham are interested in Newcastle United star Allan Saint-Maximin.

Whilst Saint-Maximin’s impact on the field cannot be questioned, his attitude off the field has proven to be problematic. This has seen him faced with several issues with other Newcastle stars, forcing manager Eddie Howe to intervene.

The Magpies have no shortage of cash and can afford to let a player of the Frenchman’s quality leave. The fact that the management have assured Howe that the transfer fee will be reinvested in the squad points to a summer sale being in the works.

Saint-Maximin has the dynamism to make an impact at the Lane and could prove to be the ace up Antonio Conte’s sleeve. The Italian brought in Ivan Perisic and Dejan Kulusevski in recent windows but could do with another dynamic winger who can make a difference.

Perisic is likely to be deployed as a left-wing back while Lucas Moura has failed to produce goals on a consistent basis. Strength in depth will be key given the clubs we are up against and Tottenham could yet add a winger or two to their roster.

Tottenham have done well this summer but need to do more to challenge Manchester City and Liverpool for the title. With Manchester United, Arsenal and Chelsea also being active in the transfer market, we cannot afford to be left behind.

While Tottenham could do with Saint-Maximin’s ability on the field, they will do well to take a better look at his off-field antics. The Frenchman’s run-in with teammates is a red flag we cannot ignore and jeopardising squad harmony should be the last thing on our agenda.
