Report: Tottenham considering signing 'outrageous' £16.5m man, Paratici absolutely loves him

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on signing Newcastle United winger, Allan Saint-Maximin, according to a report from Football London.

Spurs are set to be busy in the summer window with a number of new players due to arrive. Ivan Perisic has already signed, while Antonio Conte is said to want a whole host of new faces. And according to Football London, Saint-Maximin is among the list of targets.

The Frenchman is widely regarded as one of the most exciting players in the Premier League on his day. He lights up St James’ Park at times, and was a bargain buy for the Toon at just £16.5m.

Whether or not Newcastle will consider selling Saint-Maximin remains another matter, of course. Eddie Howe is looking to build a squad in the northeast and losing one of his star attacking players makes little sense. Further, it’s not like Newcastle need the money, so it would surely take a huge bid from Spurs.

Another issue for Saint-Maximin when it comes to Tottenham is game time. Kane and Son have two of the three attacking positions nailed down, while Dejan Kulusevski shone last season as well.

Newcastle might be able to go out and buy pretty much anyone but they don’t want to lose their best players either. And Saint-Maximin is certainly one of them.

Previously labelled as an ‘outrageous‘ by Isaac Hayden, Saint-Maximin is certainly one of the more exciting players at the club, albeit, he is a tad inconsistent.

Regardless, Newcastle will surely demand a huge fee to sell ASM. There is just no chance they strengthen a rival like Spurs by selling a top player on the cheap. And on the whole, there might be better players out there for Fabio Paratici to go out and get, despite his apparent admiration of Saint-Maximin.
