Newcastle United have reportedly reignited their interest in OGC Nice winger Allan Saint-Maximin – but would it be a good signing by the Magpies?
According to French outlet L’Équipe, cited by GFFN, Newcastle have re-entered the race to sign the promising French wide man, with the Ligue 1 side dropping their asking price from €40 million to €25 million.
The report claims that Watford, AC Milan and Borussia Dortmund are also interested in the 22-year-old, while Crystal Palace view the youngster as an ideal replacement for Wilfried Zaha should he leave for Arsenal.
New Magpies boss Steve Bruce looks set to be in the market for numerous marquee signings, with attacking reinforcements high on the manager’s list.
Saint-Maximin would bring plenty of pace, attacking flair and a serious goal threat to St James’ Park, something Newcastle fans have been crying out for all summer.
The Frenchman scored six goals last season in Ligue 1, and if the club can also secure the services of Hoffenheim forward Joelinton, Newcastle could have an exciting attacking line up on their hands for the new season.
