Leicester, Aston Villa chasing Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson

Leicester City are moving for Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson.

Junesfooteux.com says Leicester are planning to bid for the 25-year-old.

Aston Villa are also said to be keen - if they stay in the Premier League - but the report suggests Sanson would have little interest in joining a team not involved in European football.

Sanson has made 26 Ligue 1 appearances this season, scoring four goals and providing four assists.

It has been reported that Marseille could be forced to sell him to raise cash amid concerns over their Financial Fair Play standing.
