According to France Football, via Get French Football News, Watford are in pole position to sign reported Crystal Palace target Allan Saint-Maximin, and Eagles fans on Twitter are understandably not impressed.
The Daily Mail reported last month that the south London outfit are interested in the attacker, who could cost £25m, with the Frenchman being viewed as not only providing competition for Wilfried Zaha at Selhurst Park, but potentially even replacing him in the long term.
However, while France Football, via GFFN, have acknowledged the interest from Palace in their latest report, they believe that their Premier League rivals are in direct contact with Maximin’s entourage about a potential move to Vicarage Road.
