Agent Confirms Arsenal & Tottenham Are Battling To Sign Ligue 1 Midfielder

By on June 8, 2018

The summer transfer window is open and managers are working hard on their transfer targets so we’ll bring you all the latest gossip from around the globe. Today, Arsenal and Tottenham are linked with Morgan Sanson….

Morgan Sanson’s agent claims that Arsenal and Tottenham are showing a keen interest in signing the Marseille playmaker this summer, according to talkSPORT.

Sanson made his name at Montpellier having progressed through the youth system at Le Mans and he earned a move to Marseille during the 2017 January transfer window.

The 23-year-old has developed in to one of the most talented young midfielders in French football during his time at the Stade Velodrome and provided 12 goals in all competitions last season.

It appears that sort of form has caught the attention of clubs here in the Premier League as Sanson’s agent, Michael Manuello, has now revealed that Arsenal and Tottenham are showing a keen interest in signing the midfielder.

Manuello says Chelsea were also tracking the French U21 international but the West Londoners have since moved on to other targets leaving Arsenal and Tottenham to battle clubs in Spain and Italy for his signature.

The agent is quoted as saying by talkSPORT:

“Tottenham really follow Morgan, Arsenal follow him too. Now I do not know what Unai Emery will want. Chelsea will not advance more than that [their interest]. They will go on to other things.

“Sevilla appreciate him a lot, That is true. But I do not think they will have the financial means.

“Valencia are also interested, but they have Geoffrey Kondogbia so I do not think they will go any further. I think in Italy we will have one or two surprises.”

Unai Emery is expected to be busy this summer reshaping his newly inherited squad at Arsenal and a central midfielder is a priority following Santi Cazolra’s exit from the club.

Jack Wilshere’s future at the Emirates is also in severe doubt as he’s yet to sign a new contract so the Gunners have seemingly lined-up Sanson as a potential target.

However, they’ll face competition from Spurs if the youngster opts for a move to England as Mauricio Pochettino is also in the market for a new central midfielder this summer.
