According to Le10Sport, as cited by The Sun, Morgan Sanson’s valuation could take a significant dip in the summer as his club Marseille faces financial shortcomings. The French outfit could be forced to sell the midfielder for just £23 million, giving Tottenham Hotspur and other clubs still interested in his services, a considerable boost.
Morgan Sanson: Player profile
Since joining the club in January 2017, Sanson has become a key component of the Marseille side. He has made 138 appearances in all competitions, scoring 23 goals while mustering 19 assists. This season, the midfielder has been involved in ten goals in 27 league matches.
Sanson’s contributions have been critical behind Marseille’s impressive season, with the club just behind Paris Saint-Germain in the league table.
If we take a more in-depth look at his statistics, Sanson has impressed the onlookers with his aggression and tenacity. Indeed, the Frenchman has attempted 3.6 tackles per game with a success rate of 61%. He has also made almost one interception per match, indicating his ability to read the game.
Sanson is not strong in the air. But, what he lacks in physique, he makes up for it with his ability to create chances, coupled with his willingness to test the goalkeeper. The 25-year-old has averaged over one interception and 1.4 shots on goal per game this season.
Tottenham Hotspur’s midfield crisis
Tottenham Hotspur are in dire need of reinforcements in the midfield department despite the arrival of Tanguy Ndombele and Giovani Lo Celso last summer. Ndombele, in particular, has struggled with several fitness problems. His performances have also been criticised by none other than the manager Jose Mourinho. Meanwhile, Moussa Sissoko, too, has suffered from injuries while the young Oliver Skipp and Eric Dier have failed to make an impact under the Portuguese mastermind.
And finally, Giovani Lo Celso has been utilised in a much-advanced role, especially following the departure of Christian Eriksen. The Dane moved to Inter Milan in the January transfer window.
Is Sanson a viable target?
Sanson may not drastically improve Tottenham’s midfield department and make the Lilywhites a title challenger next season. But, his presence in the side could provide Mourinho with more tactical options at his disposal.
Moreover, the Frenchman’s tenacity and aggression mean he tunes in well with the physical nature of the Premier League. He can create a solid midfield partnership with someone like Harry Winks in the double-pivot of Spurs’ 4-2-3-1.
But, what really makes Sanson an appealing target for the north London giants is his price tag. A fee of just £23 million makes him a relatively cost-effective option in Mourinho’s bid to add more options in the midfield department, and at the age of 25, Sanson could be a smart long-term investment for the Lilywhites.
