Indeed, the Express have reported that the West Midlands side have opened talks with £22m-rated Morgan Sanson in what would be a strong move.
The central midfielder, valued at £25.2m by Transfermarkt, enjoyed a fine season with Marseille, scoring five goals and assisting three in 33 games in Ligue 1 and La Provence journalist Fabrice Lamperti told the Birmingham Mail he believes the player could ‘flourish’ in England amid links with a move to Molineux last month.
”I think he could flourish in England.
He is not only technical, he likes to go into contact and battling with opponents”, he wrote.
Whoscored.com identifies dribbling, finishing, long shots, interceptions, concentration and defensive contribution as particular strengths of the 24-year-old, although recognising that aerial duels are a weakness.
Well, while Wolves’ midfield was particularly impressive last season with Joao Moutinho and Ruben Neves winning praise from the likes of Jose Mourinho, the former is now 32-years-old. With that in mind, another option to come in and pad out the squad as Wolves attempt to battle in both domestic and European competition next season would make sense. Indeed, Football.London have reported Marseille are in desperate need of balancing the books after failing to gain a place in the Champions League.
Per the graphic included in the Birmingham Mail article, Sanson dribbled more than Moutinho so could add a further element of driving at opponents, potentially helping a team who scored a relatively low 47 goals last season better that number.
Wolves fans, what do you make of a potential Sanson incoming? Would he get into the first team? Let us know!
