Allan Saint-Maximin leaving Saudi Pro League

Fenerbahce closing in on ASM

2024/07/10 12:59

According to self-proclaimed football transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, Fenerbahce are now closing in on the signing of exciting winger Allan Saint-Maximin.

The 27-year-old Frenchman will be joining the Turkish Super Lig giants, who are now under the management of former Roma boss Jose Mourinho, on what is expected to be a season-long loan deal from Saudi Pro League side Al Ahli.

Saint-Maximin began his professional career with Saint-Etienne in 2013 before joining Monaco two years later. Then he spent time out on loan at Hannover and Bastia before a move to Nice and then eventually moving to the Premier League to sign for Newcastle United, where he spent four seasons with the Magpies.

Internationally, Saint-Maximin represented France at U16, U17, U20 and U21 level with 32 youth caps in total but he has never been called up to the French first-team.

So far this summer, Fenerbahce have added Levant Mercan on a free transfer from Fatih Karagumruk and Rade Krunic for a small fee from AC Milan. They finished second behind Galatasaray last season, despite collecting over 100 points in the Super Lig. 

It is believed that Jose Mourinho was personally very keen on the signing of Saint-Maximin and personally called the maverick winger to convince him to move to Istanbul.

As a football fan, this news is definitely a disappointment. Saint-Maximin is such an exciting player and it would have been great to see him in the Premier League for another season. However, I hope he thrives in Turkey and maybe gets a chance to prove himself on the international stage in the future.

As a football fan, I can't help but feel excited about this transfer news. Saint-Maximin is a talented winger and I believe he will bring a lot of creativity and dynamism to Fenerbahce's attack. Looking forward to seeing him on the pitch under Mourinho's guidance.

Wow, this is exciting news! Can't wait to see what Saint-Maximin brings to Fenerbahce's attack. He's proven himself in the Premier League and has plenty of experience in top European leagues. Good luck to him and Fenerbahce!
