Villas-Boas hints previous Wolves target Morgan Sanson could be PL-bound

Previously linked with Wolves, Morgan Sanson could be moving to the Premier League according to his manager Andre Villas-Boas.

The midfield maestro is supposedly courting the attention of a number of English clubs according to the Daily Mail.

Apparently Aston Villa, West Ham United, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal are all in the hunt.

Sanson has been a key figure for Marseille, and help the club to a second-placed finish in 2019/20.

The club have struggled a little this time around and currently sit sixth in the table on 32 points, although they do have two games in hand on all the teams above them.

Sanson’s future has therefore been speculated over, and Villas-Boas has claimed a move to England could be on the cards.

He said: “We’ll see. The transfer window is open, Sanson is a player who is highly rated. Officially, we have not received any offers, unless it happened during the match. 

“He is a boy who interests English teams because of his characteristics, and it is possible that something could happen.”

Wolves were also credited with an interest in the £20 million-rated player last summer (Daily Mail), and French outlet Le10 Sport have today claimed the Black Country club are still monitoring the player.

A long-term Moutinho successor?

The French club are known to have had some financial difficulties, and perhaps see Sanson as a means of generating funds.

The French maestro has talent and could potentially be a good long-term replacement for Joao Moutinho, who is 34.

That said, not only does Sanson have a creative side, but he also works hard out of possession which is always invaluable.
