According to an exclusive report from French media outlet Le 10 Sport, alleged West Ham target Morgan Sanson has switched representatives to notorious super agent Pini Zahavi in an effort to help facilitate a move to the Premier League.

Hammers boss David Moyes will be keen to bolster his central midfield ranks this summer.
Tomas Soucek’s loan deal could be made permanent, but only if West Ham avoid relegation. And even then, the east London outfit will want further reinforcements in the middle of the park.
According to Le 10 Sport, the Hammers want to sign Marseille ace Sanson. But they will face competition from Newcastle, and the French club want £45 million for his services.
The 25-year-old would be a superb addition for West Ham, however, albeit a rather expensive one.
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).
The Frenchman is a truly top class all-round midfielder.
And Le 10 Sport’s claim that Sanson has switched agents to the highly thought of Pini Zahavi in order to help secure him a move to England should aid West Ham’s hopes of signing him.
The Israeli businessman represented the likes of Rio Ferdinand, Didier Drogba and Ashley Cole. And he is well-renowned for getting his clients the moves they desire.
Hopefully he will be able to get Sanson the transfer he wants.
Whether that will be to West Ham, however, remains to be seen.
