The Frenchman who could be Swansea City’s Gylfi Sigurdsson replacement

Gylfi Sigurdsson’s untimely, expected departure from the south of Wales to the blue side of Merseyside has brought an abrupt end to the Swansea City fans’ optimism for the forthcoming campaign. 

The Iceland international is a hero at the Liberty Stadium but it can be understandable for the 27-year-old demanding to progress his career and obviously shares the same envisaged dream of European football as Everton boss Ronald Koeman.

The fee that Swansea are set to receive will make it an interesting time in the tavern as we wait to see who the club will pursue as a possible replacement, and our landlord thinks it could be wise to make a move for young Frenchman Morgan Sanson.

Currently plying his trade in southern France for Marseille, the 22-year-old is one of the most highly-talented prospects across the Channel and it’s only a matter of time before he moves for the big time that is the Premier League.

Originally a defensive midfielder, Sanson has impressed the tavern as he’s steadily progressed further up field into a more attack-minded player and a pivotal factor in the Ligue 1 side.

He is on the fringes of being chosen to present the France national team and a move to Swansea City this window would largely help his cause, if he was able to showcase his prospective talent in the top-flight that our fans by the bar have taken note of.

Paul Clement’s intentions would be ideally clear if he made a swoop for Morgan Sanson and it’s certainly a transfer the tavern would want to see.

Swansea City fans, will Gylfi Sigurdsson leave the Liberty Stadium this summer? Does the prospect of Morgan Sanson sound like a promising signing? Tell us your opinions in the comment section below!
