There seems a very good chance that Morgan Sanson will be playing Premier League football next season.
The report states that the midfielder has also been offered to Newcastle and Wolves. His current club Marseille are looking to offload the player in order to raise funds after missing out on a place in next season’s Champions League.
Valued at around £31million by Marseille, Sanson would add real class to a Newcastle midfield that needs improving ahead of next season.
Whether Newcastle are keen remains to be seen, but it wouldn’t be the first time. The Magpies often used to shop in Ligue 1 for bargains during the Graham Carr days, which obviously led to interest in a much younger Sanson back in 2015.
Nowadays, Sanson is much more established and would be a real marquee signing. But with West Ham already in talks and Wolves also offered the chance to sign him, surely a move to Newcastle is unlikely.
Some fans like the sound of Sanson wearing black and white, but with the uncertainty at the club right now, there is obviously scepticism from supporters. As one fan asks, who within the club is he being offered to? It’s not clear who the manager will be, or even the owner!
Newcastle fans react to being offered Sanson
Eh. I doubt we’d get him as I dunno how we’d be even in the running with everything going on, but if Rafa says I’d say go for it. He’d get the better out of him than what the Wolly and JC got out of Thauvin or Cabella.

I don’t want to sound cynical, but we definitely won’t get this one over the line
