Guimaraes has talked up publicly the prospect of former Lyon teammate Paqueta joining him on Tyneside.
And Saint-Maximin has hinted Guimaraes has said the same behind closed doors.
He told Goal: "Who would I like to attract to Newcastle? It's a conversation that we will certainly have between players, with the coach and the investors.
"The coach has a well-defined idea of what he needs for his team. If I had to choose, it would be the heart that would speak.
"I also know that Bruno (Guimaraes) is very fond of (Lucas) Paquetá."
