Liverpool are keen to compete with Everton for signing Newcastle United winger Allan Saint-Maximin next summer.

This comes from a report by Calciomercato, which claims that Saint-Maximin will be very interested in his signature next year.

Chelsea are said to be interested, while Everton and Liverpool are both keen to lure Saint-Maximin to Merseyside.

Paul Merson called Saint-Maximin “unplayable” a few days ago and few could blame him for considering a move.

Newcastle are not going to challenge European places anytime soon and if Liverpool want Saint-Maximin they would certainly be tempted.

Would Saint-Maximin make sense after Liverpool?

The first thing to say is that Calciomercato isn’t exactly a top resource when it comes to transfers that don’t involve any Serie A clubs.

They may have information about Saint-Maximin and a possible transfer, but it’s not strong enough to feel safe at the moment.

Liverpool need other attack options to arrive in 2022, with Sadio Mane, Mohamed Salah and Roberto Firmino all nearing their 30s.

Does Liverpool need another winger in Kaide Gordon and Harvey Elliott?

Saint-Maximin has improved his game by playing central in Callum Wilson’s absence, but he doesn’t quite play the wrong nine-roll that Jürgen Klopp uses.

With speed and tricks you can understand why Liverpool want Saint-Maximin but he may need to grow as a striker first.
