Wolves targeting Allan Saint-Maximin

Wolverhampton Wanderers are targeting the signing of Newcastle star Allan Saint-Maximin who could be available this summer.

The winger has been used a lot by manager Eddie Howe since he arrived, however, 90min.com understand there are concerns at the club over his salary demands.

As a result, at the right price he could be available to clubs, and Wolves are interested in him as a potential replacement for Adama Traore.

Would you take Saint-Maximin at Wolves?

Yes

Yes

No

No

Traore is currently on loan at FC Barcelona, and even if that deal isn’t made permanent it’s unlikely he will have any future at Molineux.

Saint-Maximin is better than Traore

Saint-Maximin would be a perfect replacement for Traore. Once a fans favourite, he decided to leave Wolves to return to his boyhood club Barcelona and ultimately the West Midlands side have been unable to agree a new contract with him.

Since arriving at the Spanish giants in January, he has made 12 appearances and registered four assists. He might be living his dream playing for the club where he started out, but there’s no guarantee he will get a permanent move.

As for Saint-Maximin, he has been key in Newcastle’s fight for survival and would be a great addition at Wolves.

When you compare him against Traore this season he excels in a lot of areas. He has more goals and assists combined per 90 minutes at 0.32 compared to the Spaniard’s 0.20.

The number of shots on target he has per 90 minutes also betters Traore at 0.85 compared to 0.54.

Statistics clearly show that he would be an upgrade on Traore who is valued at £25.2m. Wolves will be hoping that Barcelona or at least someone else will be willing to pay that, then they can put any money made, towards a transfer for Saint-Maximin.

Can you guess which Wolves player scored the most goals in all competitions during the season in question? Let's start with 2010/11...

The Frenchman is valued at £28.8m, and if the Magpies want to get him off their wage budget, it probably won’t take much to lure him away.

He’s been described by pundit Gary Neville as “breathtaking” on his day, so this is a move that Wolves won’t want to miss out on.
