10 Apr

Wolves have made a verbal £36.1million offer to sign Marseille star Morgan Sanson, according to reports in France.

The 24-year-old has featured regularly for the Ligue 1 club this season and helped them reach the Europa League final last year.

And Wolves could break their club-record transfer fee for a third time in less than a year if they tempt Sanson to the Premier League.

Wanderers spent £18million to sign Adama Traore before the start of the season, before splashing out £30million to make Raul Jimenez’s loan move permanent last week.

And French publication Le10Sport claim Wolves are prepared to pay £36.1million (€42m) to secure Sanson’s services.

The midfielder could be a replacement for the club’s star man Ruben Neves, who has been linked with big-money moves to Liverpool and Manchester City.

Sanson has helped Marseille climb to fifth in Ligue 1 as they chase a Champions League spot.

Meanwhile, he could play Europa League football with Wolves next season if they finish seventh.

Nuno Espirito Santo’s men are level on points with seventh-placed Leicester with a game in hand.

Sanson’s Marseille deal runs out in 2022.

Tottenham Hotspur transfer news: Spurs ‘observe’ £18million-rated midfielder Morgan Sanson

21 Dec

Tottenham have scouted Marseille’s Morgan Sanson ahead of a potential swoop for the 24-year-old, according to reports.

Sanson, the midfielder, has long been linked with a transfer to the Premier League, and Spurs are the latest team to enter the race for him.

Sanson has emerged as a target of Tottenham’s

L’Equipe, per SportWitness, say the north Londoners have ‘observed’ Sanson, who is believed to be valued at around £18million (€20m) by his current club.

Bournemouth and Watford have previously been linked with Sanson, who joined Marseille from Montpellier last January.

He’s scored 16 goals and created a further 14 in the nigh-on two years he has spent with L’OM, and clearly his performances have earned admirers from abroad.

A former France youth international, Sanson has yet to earn his debut call-up for the senior side, but his showings since joining Marseille suggest that may not be too far away.

Tottenham did not sign a single player throughout the summer transfer window, and Mauricio Pochettino, their manager, does not expect new players to arrive in north London next month.

Earlier this year, however, Pochettino claimed he must spend money in January if he is to improve Tottenham’s squad.
