After reports from Portugal of West Ham moving closer to signing a £31m striker in the form of Moussa Marega. now comes a report from France suggesting that the Hammers are closing in a £31m deal for a midfielder in the form of Marseille’s Morgan Sanson.
Quite why we need another midfielder is not clear but French newspaper L”Equipe says: “The owners of Marseille have only a few hours to validate a departure before this Sunday (June 30) due to financial restrictions. President Jacques-Henri Eyraud and his team have been working for a few days on the departure of Morgan Sanson to West Ham. The transfer is not dead but is bogged down, in the middle of multiple English intermediaries.”
