It looks like Lee Charnley’s trip to the Mediterranean has paid dividends this time. This is a good deal for a player who if he works hard can become a superstar.
This will be the second first-team player to come in this summer behind Joelinton, who also signed a 6-year deal. This could be a very exciting team with Joelinton, Almiron, and now hopefully Saint-Maximin upfront.
