Aston Villa make €18m bid to Marseille for Morgan Sanson

Premier League side Aston Villa have submitted a formal offer to Ligue 1 club Marseille for 26-year-old French midfielder Morgan Sanson: €18m, as reported by RMC Sport.

As reported by Get French Football News on Monday evening, the two clubs have been in advanced negotiations for several days, with OM seeking €25m, but forced to accept internally that they will be lucky to get that amount during this tricky economic and health context.

Dean Smith, the Aston Villa boss, has green lit the deal and made Sanson his January window priority.
