Morgan Sanson would have work cut out to break into the Wolves team

Wolverhampton Wanderers have reportedly been offered the chance to sign Marseille’s Morgan Sanson this summer.

According to Sky Sports, Wolves and Newcastle United have been offered the 24-year-old as the Ligue 1 club look to sell after missing out on the Champions League.

The report also details that West Ham have been given the chance to land the midfielder and are in talks right now.

It is understood that he could cost around £31.2million this summer.

Sanson has been a consistent performer in Ligue 1 in recent years and is a versatile midfielder that can thrive in deeper or offensive position.

 

The French playmaker certainly has an eye for a pass, while he scored five goals and supplied four assists last season in 37 games across all competitions.

But there is no guarantee that he would walk into the Wolves XI if Nuno Espirito Santo’s side splashed out £30million-plus for him.

Any new midfield signing this summer will have a sizeable task of disrupting a settled trio that was formed last season.

Ruben Neves, Joao Moutinho and Leander Dendoncker made up a formidable three-man midfield that got stronger as the season went on.

They ensured that European football will be taking place at Molineux next season and was key to their success on the pitch.

It highlights the quality in the team that Sanson wouldn’t be guaranteed a spot in the XI, but the competition is desperately needed and he would be a great option to have pushing for a starting position.
