With every day that passes, La Provence seem more and more certain that Morgan Sanson is heading to the Premier League.
A number of clubs were reportedly offered the midfielder, and West Ham are the ones who latched on the strongest, with claims the Hammers ‘could be the first to make an offer’ for the midfielder.
Needing an insurance policy should Jack Wilshere’s fitness fail him once again, the Premier League side appear ready to go big this summer, wanting to make sure they equal or improve on this year’s finish.
La Provence explain it’s ‘urgent’ for Marseille to sell to balance their books, and Sanson’s exit is ‘the most advanced’.
It was made clear on Tuesday that Sanson wanted to make sure he was making the right choice for his career, and he will have undoubtedly had a chat with a certain Dimitri Payet to find out more about the London Stadium based club, as well as with former Premier League flop Florian Thauvin.
Then again, if Marseille need to sell, few clubs outside of the Premier League will be willing to match the Ligue 1 club’s reported €35m demands.
It’s edging ever closer, it seems, but we aren’t there yet.
