The Premier League club now expect Tottenham to move for their £93,000-a-week star

According to Echo of the NorthNewcastle are now expecting Premier League rivals Tottenham and Chelsea to make a move for Allan Saint-Maximin.

What is the story?

Well, the Magpies are said to be preparing for an approach from Spurs, as well as the Blues.

The Echo of the North believe Newcastle would have a decision to make should any offers arrive for Saint-Maximin, suggesting Eddie Howe is not planning to issue a no-nonsense warning for his entertaining winger.

It is also said that Newcastle could reinvest the money and help their pursuit of Moussa Diaby and Alexander Isak if the Frenchman were sold, although board members at St James’ Park are wary of the message that would send to fans. .

Despite a lack of end product at times, Saint-Maximin is by far Newcastle’s most exciting player, as well as a fan favorite among the Toon army.

It has been said that Newcastle will consider a £40million bid for their No.10 this summer.

Interest in Saint-Maximin comes after he scored five goals in 35 Premier League appearances last season, while offering five assist.

Newcastle should consider selling Allan Saint-Maximin to Tottenham

Now hear us out, because we’re guessing that’s not a popular opinion on Tyneside.

During the miserable days of Mike Ashley and Steve Bruce, Saint-Maximin breathed life into the fans and gave them something to look forward to.

However, under Amanda Staveley and Mehrdad Ghodoussi the game has changed.

Top talent such as Bruno Guimaraes and Sven Botman are coming through the door, and the bar has been raised accordingly.

For example, Bruno equaled Saint-Maximin’s tally of five goals in just 11 The Premier League starts, so if Newcastle can get £40m for the £93,000 per week man and replace him with someone more efficient, it would improve the team as a whole.

Of course, it would be hard to say goodbye to a fan favorite, but given the above, it certainly wouldn’t be the end of the world.
