Chelsea, Liverpool and Everton are all interested in Newcastle winger Allan Saint-Maximin, according to reports in the Italian media.
The Frenchman has been in red-hot form at the start of this season, having scored two goals and provided three assists in six Premier League appearances.
A lot of fans on Twitter think signing Saint-Maximin would be a good idea, with some believing he would add an extra dimension to the Blues’ attack:

Saint-Maximin certainly has the ability to make it at Stamford Bridge, and he is still only 24 years of age as well. However, there are major concerns about his fitness record.
The winger does spend a lot of time in the treatment room with hamstring and calf problems, but he has still managed to play 63 games over the last two years for the Magpies.
It will be interesting to see whether Chelsea do actually make a move for Saint-Maximin either in January or at the end of the season.
