Many Aston Villa fans are reacting to a tweet that Fabrizio Romano has posted about the club, which suggests that they are monitoring Morgan Sanson.
The journalist passed on a report from @JulienMaynard who says that Villa are interested in Sanson and that they are set to open negotiations with Marseille in an attempt to sign the midfielder.
It seems like this is the type of player fans of the club want as the general consensus was one of excitement following this news.
The 26 year-old has an abundance of experience for both club and country, which also includes appearances in the Champions League. He is a midfielder who clearly is a threat in attack but one who can also help out the defence as he has managed 1.9 tackles and 1.1 key passes a game in Ligue 1 this campaign (WhoScored).
With their club now linked to experienced European stars like Sanson, it is easy to see why some Villa fans are excited about this news. With their club currently tenth in the Premier League with at least two, and in some cases three, games in hand on teams above them (SofaScore) players like Sanson could add the much-needed depth and quality to help the club finish the season in the European qualification places.
Here is how these Villa fans reacted to the transfer news
“Dean Smith’s tricky Villans are going on a European tour”
“What a singing this would be”
