West Ham United is the most likely destination for Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson, according to La Provence, despite a number of rival Premier League clubs showing an interest in the French play-maker.
The 1993 European Cup winners are under pressure to sell a number of their star players after finishing outside the Champions League places last season and Sky Sports claims that Sanson has been made available for £31 million.
West Ham have held talks with the former Montpellier ace but Manuel Pellegrini’s side were facing plenty of competition with Newcastle United and long-time suitors Wolverhampton Wanderers also in the race.
But according to La Provence, Sanson is likely to be playing his football at the London Stadium, rather than St James’ Park or Molineux, by the time the 2019/20 season kicks off in two months’ time.
An all-action 24-year-old, Sanson was a rare bright spark in a dreadful campaign for Marseille and scored four goals in all competitions while providing a further five assists.
He’d add creativity and thrust to a West Ham midfield which has often looked a little one paced in recent times.
