Arsenal join West Ham in Morgan Sanson transfer race as Marseille boss Villas-Boas confirms interest in £25m midfielder

ARSENAL have joined the race to sign Morgan Sanson from Marseille, according to reports.

SunSport exclusively revealed West Ham are ready to make their move for the £25million-rated star.

The Daily Mail claim the Gunners, Aston Villa and Tottenham have been linked to Sanson.

Marseille boss Andre Villas-Boas has confirmed interest from the Premier League for the midfielder.

The former Spurs and Chelsea manager admitted a transfer to England 'could happen'.

Speaking at Saturday's post-match press conference, he said: "We'll see.

"The transfer window is open, Sanson is a player who is highly rated.

"Officially, we have not received any offers, unless it happened during the match.

"He is a boy who interests English teams because of his characteristics, and it is possible that something could happen."

Sanson, 26, has been with Marseille since he joined from Montpellier in 2017.


He has scored 25 goals and made 22 assists in 156 appearances for the Ligue 1 side.

The French midfielder has 18 months left on his current contract with Marseille.

Arsenal could go all out to sign him as Mesut Ozil is set to join Turkish side Fenerbahce.

Technical director Edu has insisted the Gunners need to sign a creative midfielder.
