NUFC set to sign winger in next ’48 hours’ – & no.1 target has been revealed – Report

According to the Shields Gazette, Newcastle are ‘on the verge’ of signing a winger after club representatives flew out of the country last night to finalise the deal.

Ross Gregory’s latest piece also claims that Nice star Allan Saint-Maximin is the club’s ‘no.1 target’ – suggesting he may be the man that’s due to sign at St James’ Park.

Here’s a snippet from the Shields Gazette’s latest piece, which claims our second summer signing looks set to arrive ‘in the next 48 hours’:

Newcastle United are set to complete their second signing of the summer in the next 48 hours – with Allan Saint-Maximin their No1 target.

The Gazette understands the Magpies are on the verge of signing a winger with club representatives having flown out of the country last night to complete the deal.

Saint-Maximin is understood to be available for around £20million.

The 22-year-old shares Brazilian striker Joelinton’s agent, after he became Newcastle’s record signing after completing his £40million-move to Tyneside yesterday.

Saint-Maximin triggered more speculation that he is following Joelinton to St James’s Park by some of his photos on Instagram last night.

If it is Saint-Maximin, Newcastle will be landing a player who has plenty of pace and potential but who has question marks surrounding his attitude and consistency.

Newcastle had identified a winger as one of their key areas to strengthen this summer along with an attacking left-back. They are also looking to sign another striker.

Allan Saint-Maximin is an electric but frustrating talent, being a player with real pace, flair and skills – yet someone who has been criticised for his attitude and final product.

Interestingly, this comes just a few days after Martin Hardy claimed that Newcastle were preparing a spending spree that would see us sign ‘two or three’ new players by the ‘middle of this week’.

Considering Joleinton has already signed and there’s now strong claims that a winger is all set to sign over the coming days, it looks like he may have been right!

Here’s hoping.

  1. “…a player who has plenty of pace and potential but who has question marks surrounding his attitude and consistency.”

    So who is it? Maximin? Kenedy? Ben Arfa? Sameobi? Aarons?
