According to France Football (June 16th edition, page 24), West Ham and Crystal Palace will come knocking for Morgan Sanson, with Marseille desperate to raise cash this summer.

Hammers boss David Moyes will undoubtedly want to bolster his central midfield ranks at the London Stadium this summer.

And the same can be said of Eagles manager Roy Hodgson at Selhurst Park.

West Ham and Crystal Palace could both do with more invention, guile and creativity in the middle of the park.

And France Football suggest that Marseille ace Morgan Sanson is an option for both London clubs.

It is claimed that the 25-year-old isn’t too keen on leaving the Le Stade Velodrome. France Football suggest that he could be forced out, however, with Marseille desperate to raise around £55 million this summer.


Sanson has racked up five goals and five assists in 27 Ligue 1 outings for Marseille this season (Transfermarkt).

In those appearances, the Frenchman has averaged 30.1 passes per game, with a very impressive completion rate of 85.9%. He has also averaged 1.1 key passes per game (Who Scored).

The 25-year-old clearly isn’t afraid to put in a defensive shift either.

In 27 league appearances, Sanson has averaged 2.2 tackles and 0.9 interceptions per game (Who Scored).

Le 10 Sport claims that Marseille could demand as much as £45 million for the Frenchman. The same publication have speculated that the Ligue 1 outfit could be willing to accept closer to £30 million, however.

That would be decent value for whichever clubs wins the race for Sanson’s signature.

West Ham and Crystal Palace will surely both struggle to pay that kind of money for a single player, however.

And perhaps Marseille will have to drop their asking price even further still, if the Hammers or the Eagles are to bring the 25-year-old to London this summer.
