Incoming Roma coach Mourinho targets Newcastle dazzler Saint-Maximin

Incoming Roma coach Jose Mourinho is keen on a raid on Newcastle United.

Mourinho has big plans to revamp Roma's attack this summer and high on his shopping list is Allan Saint-Maximin, reports Corriere dello Sport.

The Frenchman extended his contract with Newcastle to 2026 earlier this season, but has recently been rumoured to be leaving the club.

Manchester United and Arsenal are both being linked with Saint-Maximin ahead of the summer market.

And now Mourinho has recommended his signing to Roma's board, with the Portuguese to replace current coach Paulo Fonseca at the end of the season.
