It promises to be a huge summer of activity at St James’ Park this summer, as Newcastle United look to become regular challengers for a Champions League spot. However, according to Dean Jones at Give Me Sport, the club could be willing to cash in on one of their biggest stars.
The report claims that the Magpies may be willing to listen to offers for star player Allan Saint-Maximin. The Frenchman has been one of the fan favorites since arriving at the club, but he may depart the club due to contract issues.
Saint-Maximin likely for Newcastle summer transfer exit
It has been reported that the star could be set to depart the club, as he has struggled for regular game time under Eddie Howe this term. The Frenchman is currently on a $93,000-per-week deal at St James’ Park, and has struggled with injury issues throughout the 2022-23 season.
Despite Newcastle’s success this season, the 26-year-old has scored just once in 20 games. The Magpies will likely encounter a number of potential suitors for the former Nice star, with Arsenal among the clubs that were previously linked with a move.
