Wolverhampton Wanderers are interested in signing Marseille’s all-action midfielder Morgan Sanson in the summer, as reported by Telefoot.

A 24-year-old playmaker, Sanson has been a key part of Marseille’s squad since he moved to the Stade Velodrome from Montpelier for a fee of £10 million in January 2017 (Goal).


The former France U21 international has scored four goals and set up four more in all competitions this season but those statistics don’t accurately reflect his impact. Sanson is a buzzing and dynamic influence in the centre of the park for Rudi Garcia’s side.

As a result, Telefoot reports that he is the player with the highest market value in Marseille’s squad alongside talisman Florian Thauvin and coveted youngster Boubacar Kamara, with Wolves and Bundesliga leaders Borussia Dortmund tracking his progress.

Wolves are one of the most ambitious sides in Europe right now, luring big names like Rui Patricio, Joao Moutinho and Raul Jimenez to Molineux.

But they could be left frustrated in their attempts to bring Sanson to the Black Country. The 24-year-old extended his contract at Marseille in December and told Telefoot that he has his heart set on a long-term stay with the Ligue 1 giants.
