Many Aston Villa fans are reacting to a tweet that Fabrizio Romano has posted about the club, which suggests that there is only one thing left to do to complete the Morgan Sanson deal.
The well-respected Italian journalist reported that the paperwork has been signed by both clubs, and all that is left for the Frenchman to do is have his medical.
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 too as he has managed an average of 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. Sanson could add the much-needed depth and quality to help the club finish the season in the European qualification places.
Here is what Villa fans said following the update:
“Here we go! We have a new hard-working, energetic, creative midfielder, with good scoring ability! #avfc”
“THERE WE GO FABRIZIIOOOOOO”
“High key W”
“My club is on the rise again. The recruitment is just getting better & better.”
“Say them 3 magic words, you beautiful man”
