Aston Villa leading race for Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson

Aston Villa are leading the race for Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson.

Telefoot says Villa are the Premier League club chasing Sanson.

Villa are set to open talks for the 26-year-old Frenchman this week, who is valued at around £22.5m.

Marseille coach Andre Villas-Boas said: “We'll see. The transfer window is open, Sanson is a player who is highly rated in England.

"He is a boy who interests English teams because of his characteristics, and it is possible that something could happen."
