A number of Aston Villa fans have taken to Twitter to react after Fabrizio Romano claimed that the Villans are ready to open talks with Marseille concerning a potential move for Morgan Sanson.
It has been a quiet January on and off the pitch for Dean Smith’s men so far. But with the Premier League table showing that Villa may have a fantastic opportunity to achieve something special this season, it appears that they could bolster their squad in this window.
And according to Romano, Sanson is a player on their radar. In fact, the journalist has stated on Twitter that Villa are set to start discussions with his current club about a possible transfer.
Sanson has scored two and provided three assists in Ligue 1 this season. And according to The Sun, he is valued at £25 million by Marseille.
The links have gone down incredibly well amongst a number of Villa fans on social media. Many believe that he could be an outstanding signing for Smith’s side.
The 26-year-old would provide competition in a number of positions, particularly in central and attacking midfield.
That may see him take some of the pressure off of the likes of Douglas Luiz, John McGinn, Jack Grealish and Ross Barkley.
It certainly appears that many Villa fans would be very happy to see Sanson arrive in the Premier League during this window.
Here is what some of the supporters make of the links…
Would be a great signing
