INSIDER: Aston Villa now ahead of West Ham for Marseille midfielder Sanson

Aston Villa are closing on a deal for Olympique Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson.

Sanson is up for sale at OM this month and Telefoot's Julien Brun has revealed Villa are moving for the midfield attacker.

He said on Vrai Mag: "For Morgan Sanson, nothing is completely finished, but there are two clubs that are in the race: two English clubs.

"The one that is most urgent is Aston Villa with the will to make an offer as soon as they can in the winter transfer window to pick him up.

"If ever that was not done with Aston Villa, we know that West Ham is very interested in the arrival of Morgan Sanson, but for next summer."
