Aston Villa supporters have been giving their takes on the reports the club are interested in moving for Morgan Sanson.
According to Le Phoceen, the Midlands club are one of a few sides keen on the French schemer, but a deal would hinge on the club staying in the Premier League.
Villa currently sit just one place and one point above the relegation zone, and dropping into the Championship would surely ruin any chance of a deal for the 25-year-old.
Sanson, who has supposedly courted the interest of Manchester United and Wolverhampton Wanderers amongst others, has been a Marseille player since 2017.
The star has been an ever-present in the starting XI since joining, making 136 appearances to date.
The former France U21 international is seen by Marseille as a means of generating funds, amid concerns about Financial Fair Play.
The club would be hoping to command around £30 million for any sale of the player this summer.
Villa fans react
Many Aston Villa fans were quite pleased regarding the reported interest in Sanson, although some weren’t getting too carried away given the club’s current position in the Premier League table:
