Liverpool fans are expecting a forward to be signed in the next year. The Reds have put off investing in the next front three and they can’t avoid it any longer. According to a report in Italy, Liverpool want to sign Allan Saint-Maximin from Newcastle United.
The Saint-Maximin story
24-year-old wide forward Allan Saint-Maximin began his career at Saint-Etienne.
The Frenchman made his senior debut at just 16-years-old.
Monaco snapped him up before he moved to rivals Nice in 2017.
In 2019 it was Newcastle United’s turn with the Geordies signing him up to a six-year deal.
Since his arrival on Tyneside he’s been a standout performer for Steve Bruce’s side.
He’s notched two goals and three assists in six games this season.
Following an outstanding performance against Leeds United, Gary Neville described Saint-Maximin as ‘breathtaking’.
Liverpool want Allan Saint-Maximin
It’s no secret that the Reds will be in the market for a forward in the near future.
According to CalcioMercato, Liverpool want to sign Allan Saint-Maximin.
The outlet has claimed that Everton and Chelsea also want the Frenchman who is valued at around £70m by the Geordie side.
What RTK has to say
We can’t believe much that comes from CalcioMercato but we’d love to believe this one.
Saint-Maximin is the type of player Liverpool fans would love.
He is a ‘gets you on your feet’ type of player, we haven’t had a player like that since Luis Suarez left for Barcelona.
We don’t think that Newcastle will be able to command £70m for him, particularly given their situation in the league table.
Should one of the big boys come knocking the Frenchman is likely to ask for a move, he certainly has the talent to be playing for a top four side.
