Chelsea join race to sign 24-year-old technically gifted forward

Allan Saint-Maximin is starting to become a highly sought-after footballer in the transfer market, with a raft of PL giants keen on signing him. Among the teams interested in the Newcastle United winger are Chelsea, Everton and Liverpool.

The 24-year-old forward joined the Magpies from Nice in the summer of 2019 and has since established himself as a crucial player for the club. One of the most electric forwards in the PL, Saint-Maximin, has been in fine touch at the onset of the 2021/22 campaign.

In seven matches so far this term, Allan has garnered a return of two goals and three assists. His progress over the last two years have captured the attention of some of the biggest teams in the PL, with three clubs in Chelsea, Everton and Liverpool currently keen on securing his services.

The interest from the Blues is interesting but not unfounded as the futures of Ziyech, Werner, and Hudson-Odoi appear to be unknown at the moment. With that in mind, Chelsea do need to keep their options open and considering a pacy forward like the Frenchman surely does appear to be a prudent step.

However, Chelsea, Everton and Liverpool will need to wait till the summer to make their move for the French attacker, as Steve Bruce is determined to keep a firm hold on the forward in a season that could see the Magpies flirt with relegation again.
