On Tuesday it was claimed by France’s Le10 Sport that Wolves had submitted a €42m offer for Morgan Sanson.
A day later, Marseille specialists Le Phoceen looked at the story and explained the player’s actual value is probably more like €20-25m.
The French club will likely need to sales this summer to ease their financial situation, and Florian Thauvin and Sanson are thought to be the most bankable players. So if Wolves are interested in the midfielder, they probably stand a good chance and at a lower price.
An unnamed agent was quoted as saying: “He’s a good midfielder, but I’m not sure he has the physical impact to really interest the Premier League clubs, it seems to me to be a very high price, even if the English are willing to pay sometimes disproportionate transfers.”
Unsurprisingly, it appears the offer doesn’t actually exist.
La Provence have spoken to a member of the player’s entourage, who denied that Wolves have made the €42m offer.
Interest from the Premier League club wasn’t first reported by Le10 Sport, so probably shouldn’t be ruled out. It was Telefoot who first came with the claims, and it’s only the offer which has been denied.
