West Ham are reportedly keen to sign Marseille ace Morgan Sanson, according to French publication Le 10 Sport. And the Hammers might have just been given a boost with claims suggesting that the French giants are already lining up a replacement for the 25-year-old midfielder.
Buzz Sport claims that Marseille have already lined up a replacement for the Frenchman. They suggest that the Ligue 1 giants are preparing a summer bid for Boca Juniors ace Jorman Campuzano.
So it appears that Marseille are preparing for life without Sanson.
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 great value for West Ham.
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).
Sanson is clearly an all-round midfielder and would be a very useful addition for the Hammers.
For just £23 million as well, the Frenchman could end up being a real coup for West Ham.
