Crystal Palace have one of the Premier League’s most exciting dribblers in Wilfried Zaha, with the Ivorian’s dancing feet having turned some of England’s best into Sunday league defenders, although there may be a player on par with the Palace talisman just across the channel.
Allan Saint-Maximin, like the Eagles number 11, has a knack for embarrassing his opponent with a flurry of feints and stepovers and is looking like the real deal.
What’s his stats saying?

This Palace fan is right to ask; the Selhurst Park faithful witnessed a disaster-class in finishing at the weekend and, although the result eventually went their way, they could have easily stuck five or six past Huddersfield. The 22-year-old winger, who is valued at £22.5m by Transfermarkt, has chalked up six goals and four assists in 26 league appearances for Nice this campaign.
Palace fans on Twitter discussed a move for the speedster, with some drooling over the prospect of a linkup with Zaha…
Imagine Allan Saint-Maximin in a Palace kit?
