According to The Daily Record, the future of Celtic midfielder Olivier Ntcham depends on West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers target Morgan Sanson.

It has been reported that Marseille want to sign Ntcham from Celtic in the summer transfer window.


However, according to the report, the French club need to sell players in order to raise the funds to secure the services of the 23-year-old midfielder.


West Ham United and Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly interested in signing Sanson and the Hammers are in talks, with Marseille demanding more than £30 million as transfer fee for the 24-year-old central midfielder.

If Marseille are able to sell Sanson, then they will get the funds needed to rebuild the team under new manager Andres Villas-Boas and sign Ntcham, it has been reported.

Ntcham has been on the books of Celtic since the summer of 2017 when he joined from Manchester City for a transfer fee reported by BBC Sport to be worth £4.5 million.

The 23-year-old did not have a great 2018-19 season on a personal level, and one suspects that not too many Celtic Park faithful will be disappointed to see him leave in the January transfer window.
