Last month, the French outlet revealed the player’s agent Pini Zahavi has offered Tottenham the chance to sign Sanson in the summer, per Foot Mercato. Zahavi notably helped bring Jose Mourinho to Chelsea (talkSPORT).
The super-agent has taken control of handling Sanson’s affairs and he has been tasked with “opening doors” to bigger clubs, including the likes of Spurs, Arsenal and Everton.
Marseille are reportedly looking to offload some of their stars as the club faces financial difficulty amid the ongoing pandemic.
The midfielder is up for a new challenge and his representatives are eyeing a move to the Premier League.
Ever since he arrived at the Stade Velodrome from Montpellier for £8.1m in 2017, the 25-year-old has dazzled the Ligue 1 crowds, scoring five goals and creating four assists in 27 games for Andres Villas-Boas’ side, taking 1.4 shots per game, averaging 1.1 key passes, and completing 1.5 dribbles on average (via WhoScored).
Sanson has already rebuffed interest from Crystal Palace and West Ham United, as he wants to play Champions League football.
However, it is hard to imagine Daniel Levy will be willing to meet Marseille’s valuation, given the current economic climate. Indeed, the Olympians have priced Sanson at somewhere in the region of £31m to £35.5m.
Mourinho is well aware he will have to cope with a severely restricted budget in the transfer market and the Portuguese may feel this staggering fee may be better spent elsewhere.
