Arsenal keen on agreeing deal for Newcastle United attacker?

Saint-Maximin on Arsenal radar

Arsenal have reportedly joined Paris Saint-Germain in the race to sign Allan Saint-Maximin from Newcastle United in the next transfer window.

The 23-year-old has enjoyed an impressive debut season with the Magpies and he has registered four goals and seven assists from 27 appearances.

His progress has caught the eye of several European clubs including Paris Saint-Germain and Napoli, but Le 10 Sport claims that they could face competition from the Gunners.

The north London side were previously credited with an interest in Saint-Maximin when he was at former club Nice, but they were unable to strike a suitable agreement.

They could, however, get another opportunity to land the player's signature this summer and it is reported that the interested clubs may have already made contact with the Frenchman's representatives.

Saint-Maximin was purchased by the Magpies from Nice for £17m last summer and reports claim that the club could consider offers of more than £30m to sanction his sale.
