Michael Manuello, the representative for Marseille play-maker Morgan Sanson, has today revealed that North London rivals Arsenal and Tottenham are both interested in a move for his client.

 Creative spark

Sanson, a versatile 23-year-old midfielder, has been on the books of Marseille since last January, when he joined the club from fellow Ligue 1 outfit Montpellier for a fee of 9 million Euro, plus bonuses.

And the highly-regarded former French U21 international’s star has continued to rise at the Orange Vélodrome, with his performances in Ligue 1 and the Europa League this past season having caught the eye of a number of Europe’s biggest clubs.


Sanson racked up 10 goals and 3 assists across all competitions for Marseille over the course of the campaign, with the technically-gifted midfielder’s agent having opened up on interest in his client from around Europe during an interview with FootMercato earlier today:

‘Tottenham really follow Morgan, Arsenal follow him too,‘ Manuello explained.
