Report – Premier League Club Identify Magpie As Potential Replacement For £70m-Rated Winger



Once again on Saturday, Allan Saint-Maximin tried desperately to create a moment of magic to get the stagnant Newcastle attack going. The Frenchman was one of only a few Magpies to show any urgency going forward in the second half.

While not much worked in the end for the 22-year-old, the impetus to get forward and try to get something to happen was at least endearing to some.


It’ll come as little surprise that there are now reports circulating of outside interest in Newcastle’s electric winger. The Daily Mail are claiming that Wolves have Allan Saint-Maximin listed as a potential replacement for Adama Traore.

There is expected to be a bidding war for the 24-year-old, who Wolves value at around £70m, with both Real Madrid and Barcelona reported to be interested.

If one of La Liga’s giants poach the Spanish winger this summer, Newcastle could have to fend off interest from Wolves in our star player.

Saint-Maximin, by all accounts, seems to love it at Newcastle. However, he has to be frustrated with the style of play currently on display at Newcastle.

Allan did sign a six-year deal when he joined this past summer for £16m from Nice. So Wolves would have to stump up quite a fee to prise him away just a year later.

We just don’t even want to think about losing Saint-Maximin after only one year. Hopefully, this team can find some answers in the final third and end this season on some sort of high. If they do, it’ll likely come through the exploits of our French winger.

    Ignorance on Ashley’s part is no excuse.

    It’s the club that foots the bill not Ashley.

    He said he knows he’s made mistakes, so why isn’t he letting people who know better run the club?

    I really don’t think rafa needed the money, I heard he was worth in excess of 25m. I think he was just sick of all the complicity, duplicity and any other icity that came his way in his time fighting fires here and winning little victories. As he said when he left ” I could not trust the board”. Would any of us argue with that? Ash, bishop, barnes and charnley are collectively as unpleasant a bunch of people you could ever meet.

    The stupid thing is that rafa’s wages would have been massively dwarfed by the 40M he could have saved ash on.Joel. Crazy knee jerk forcing Rafa out and a mistake that is sadly built to last. Apparently Bruce’s latest gem is ”we need to score goals to win matches ” Wow, a regular Poirrot there in our midst.

    Unless there is a massive all boycott, maybe the only alternative is to drop a division and cut off the advertising revenue to the fat man. Only when it starts costing him money will he finally maybe relinquish his toy. Rest assured bruce will be the to keep us down there for a while.

    ASM hasn’t really done anything to warrant a big money move.

    He’s by far and away our most exciting and threatening player but he doesn’t make many chances or score many goals.

    He’s still a show pony, could definitely be a world beater but needs work, he’s in the wrong place to learn through good coaching.

    Bills son, what on earth are you talking about?Are you really trying to to suggest we aren’t anything other than a selling club? When has the money we’ve ever made on players been properly reinvested back into the squad? You’re delusional if you think otherwise.
