According to a report from French publication Le 10 Sport, West Ham and Wolves are plotting summer moves for Marseille midfield ace Morgan Sanson.
The Hammers are weak in the central midfield department. They do have Tomas Soucek on loan, but if they don’t manage to turn that deal into a permanent one they will be bang in trouble.
Wolves, on the other hand, are well stocked in central midfield. But as the old saying goes – you can never have too many good players.
And Sanson certainly fits into that category.
The 25-year-old 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).
In 27 league appearances, he has averaged 2.2 tackles and 0.9 interceptions per game (Who Scored).
French publication Le 10 Sport claimed just the other day that the French midfielder could be available for just £23 million this summer.
And that would represent excellent value for money for either West Ham or Wolves.
At the moment, Wolves are probably a more attractive prospect than West Ham.
So the Hammers will have their work cut-out if they do want to sign Sanson this summer.
