Marseille want to hang on to Sanson but may be forced to sell him and some of their other stars because of Financial Fair Play restrictions. He is currently under contract in the South of France unit, 2022.
Two weeks after paying £30 million to seal the permanent transfer of Rául Jiménez from Benfica, Wolves are preparing to smash their transfer record again.
That is after reports emerged that the West Midlands side want to sign Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson for a reported £36 million, with French publication Le 10 Sport reporting that a verbal offer for the player has already been made.
Regarded as somebody who can operate as a deep-lying playmaker, 24 year old Sanson is a French under-21 international who has made 28 appearances for Marseille in Ligue 1 this season, scoring 4 times and providing 3 assists.
