The Newcastle winger has spent the last three years on Tyneside, but his future at St James’ Park is far from certain.
What’s the latest news involving Saint-Maximin?
Saint-Maximin has been one of Newcastle’s top performers this season, registering eight goal involvements in 28 appearances in the top-flight.
However, he has only scored once in 2022, and Eddie Howe appears to be losing patience with the talented forward.
It is understood that Newcastle would be willing to sell Saint-Maximin if they receive an offer in the region of £50m for him this summer, with Everton, Aston Villa and Wolves all interested in the 25-year-old.

What has Brown said about Saint-Maximin potentially joining Everton?
Brown has admitted that Saint-Maximin is unlikely to join Everton as things stand, given that the Toffees are currently embroiled in a relegation battle.
He has believed for the best part of a year that the Frenchman would be a good fit at Goodison Park, though, due to the pace and trickery he offers on the wing.
When asked about Everton’s chances of landing Saint-Maximin, Brown told GIVEMESPORT: “It looks out of reach at the moment. I’ve thought since last summer, when we found out that Rafael Benitez wanted to play quick, counter-attacking football with wingers, that Saint-Maximin was ideal for that kind of role.”
Could Saint-Maximin replace Richarlison at Everton this summer?
If the Brazilian does depart the Merseyside club, Saint-Maximin could be the player that Everton target to replace him.
Frank Lampard previously described Saint-Maximin as “unplayable” after he delivered a stunning performance against Everton at St James’ Park back in February.
This suggests that he is clearly a fan of the attacker, and he may fancy his chances of working with him in the future.
Of course, Everton need to stay up to have any chance of getting a deal for Saint-Maximin over the line, but if they remain in the Premier League for another year, they could make a concerted effort to tempt him away from Newcastle in the off-season.
