New Everton boss Rafa Benitez wants to raid his former side Newcastle United for the services of Allan Saint-Maximin.
With the departure of Carlo Ancelotti to Real Madrid, there have been reports that Brazilian Richarlison might move to Spain with Benitez ready to swoop for Maximin if they lose the winger.
As reported by the Mirror, Everton is willing to hand Benitez the needed money to fund moves this summer, and players with Premier League experience will be needed.
There were reports that Benitez was said to be against signing Saint-Maximin two years ago but the player who Newcastle bought for £16.5m from Nice has been a revelation under Steve Bruce and a move to Everton might entice him going by how the club struggled when he wasn't around.
