Report: West Ham eye swap bid for Morgan Sanson

West Ham are considering making a bid for Morgan Sanson that would potentially see Manuel Lanzini move in the opposite direction, according to a report from The Sun.

Sanson has been linked with a host of Premier League sides. The Sun notes that the Hammers have failed on several occasions to bring the £25 million-rated 26-year-old to the London Stadium.

Meanwhile, the report also suggests that Newcastle United are also eyeing the midfielder as a potential summer target. And journalist Fabrizio Romano claimed on Twitter on Saturday that Aston Villa are ready to open talks with Marseille over a potential move for Sanson.

But the Hammers also appear to be preparing a bid.

According to The Sun, Marseille would be open to a swap deal. Sanson’s contract expires in 18 months.

It is suggested that West Ham value Lanzini at around £15 million.


TBR View: Time may be right for West Ham to let Lanzini go

Lanzini has been a peripheral figure for the Hammers this season. He has only made one Premier League start, with a further nine appearances coming from the bench.

Spotrac shows that he earns £70,000-a-week. It surely makes sense therefore, to move him on if he is only a fringe player in Moyes’s mind.

It is a huge shame for Lanzini. But unfortunately, he has struggled to recapture the magic he had before his serious injury ruled him out of the 2018 World Cup.

And if Marseille are keen on the Argentinian, it could potentially be a good move for all parties.
