West Ham using Aldridge connection to clinch Sanson deal

West Ham United have the inside-running in their pursuit of Olympique Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson.

The Hammers failed with an offer of €30m in January for Sanson - but remain keen ahead of the summer market.

And the presence of former Hammers chief Paul Aldridge at Marseille has them at an advantage.

Aldridge has joined OM as a transfers advisor with a brief to work with Premier League clubs to get top price for their available players.

Le 10 Sport says this includes Sanson, with the Irons still eager to bring him to London.
