Newcastle are being linked with Morgan Sanson the 20 year-old 6′ tall midfielder who plays for Montpellier.
Morgan Sanson – Montpellier 20 year-old attacking midfielder
Morgan started his career at Le Mans and played there 30 times with three goals before signing on at Montpellier in the summer of 2013, and since he’s been at Montpellier he has been impressive and played 45 times with a couple of goals.
The right-footed attacking midfielder has also attracted interest from AC Milan and West Ham for the signature of a player who has been capped eight times for the French U21 side.
Morgan is said to be one of the top up-and-coming young players in France and as far as we can tell this is the first time we have been linked with the youngster.
However, there is a report in Italy in La Corriere dello Sport, that says that AC Milan seem to be in the driver’s seat for the young Frenchmen, who has impressed the Inter-Milan scouts when they have watched him this season.
But Montpellier are again asking for a daft price for one of their youngsters, and are said to be holding out for £7M – a sum Newcastle are supposed to have paid out for 24 year-old French International Remy Cabella last summer.
