Allan Saint-Maximin Linked With Paris Saint-Germain Amid Contract Frustrations

Newcastle United winger Allan Saint-Maximin is reportedly the subject of interest from Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain ahead of the opening of the summer transfer window.

The Frenchman has been in impressive form for the Magpies this season, particularly since the restart, bagging a hat-trick of assists in the win over Bournemouth.

The 23-year-old joined the club from French side Nice last summer for £16.5m and has quickly settled in the north east, becoming a fan favourite.

However, reports this month suggested that Saint-Maximin's future could be uncertain with the player frustrated at not yet being offered an improved contract.

Now according to the Daily Mail, PSG could plot a move for the attacker this summer.

The French side already boast the likes of Neymar, Kylian Mbappé and Angel Di Maria in their attacking ranks, yet the Newcastle starlet would be another exciting addition to their fierce squad.

The report also suggests that Saint-Maximin is also on the wishlist all of England's top clubs including Tottenham, who have reportedly already expressed an interest in the player.

Spurs could be willing to offer unwanted stars Danny Rose and Juan Foyth as well as a cash sum in order to bring the player to the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.

That being said, Newcastle manager Steve Bruce has recently hailed his wide-man as the 'signing of the season' and a player he was confident would not be sold this summer.

The forward demonstrated his exceptional talents in his side's recent 4-1 thrashing of Bournemouth, where he registered three assists against the relegation threatened side.

As for Newcastle, while they will be looking to hold on to their star man, they have shown an interest in the likes Roma' Patrick Schick as well as the highly rated Uruguayan youngster Facundo Pellistri.
