Allan Saint-Maximin wants Nantes’ Ludovic Blas at Newcastle next season

In speaking with Goal.com, Newcastle United’s former Nice forward Allan Saint-Maximin was asked who he would sign if he were in charge of the Magpies’ recruitment this summer, following major investment from Saudi Arabia this season. The 25-year-old singled out Nantes attacking midfielder Ludovic Blas:

“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 would most certainly want my friends to join the club. I’m thinking for example of Ludovic Blas. I really like the person and what he also does at Nantes. He’s scored a lot of goals. He’s an essential element at Nantes… I know that Bruno [Guimarães] is very fond of [Lucas] Paqueta.”
