Marseille have been looking to sell Morgan Sanson to West Ham United during the past week though talks have stalled, as reported by French source L’Equipe. 

The Ligue 1 side are determined to part ways with the midfielder this summer in order to comply with Financial Fair Play regulations. Another big-name who is expected to leave them soon is Kevin Strootman.

West Ham may just be looking to add another creative midfielder to their ranks. Sanson was less than spectacular during the past season though he did manage decent stats of having played 53 times in all competitions and scored 12 goals.

The 24-year-old has the potential to get better and could be a solid addition to Manuel Pellegrini’s side.

The Hammers had to contend with long-term injuries to the likes of Andriy Yarmolenko, Jack Wilshere and Manuel Lanzini last season and they probably could have done better than they did had the trio been available for the majority of the campaign.

Pellegrini should seriously analyse the fitness of the trio this summer and if it looks likely that one or two of them could end up spending the majority of next season out injured, then West Ham should seriously consider making a move for the Frenchman to bolster their midfield.

Marseille appear to be desperate to sell and the Hammers could end up picking up a bargain.

However, with talks appearing to stall, it looks as though the East Londoners are hesitant to buy and so nothing could end up happening.
