Arsenal to beat EPL clubs for Partey alternative

A number of English Premier League clubs are lined up for the signature of French Ligue 1 outfit Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson amidst interest from North London club Arsenal, Daily Mail reports.

West Ham United, Wolves, Fulham and Burnley are all in the race to snap up the signature of the 26-year-old with the French Ligue 1 star willing to cash in from his sale.

The Gunners, therefore, have been tipped to win other English teams for the signature of the player as they are keen on a new midfielder, especially now that they are finding it difficult to negotiate a deal for Thomas Partey with Atletico Madrid.

Morgan Sanson has established himself as a force in the midfield of the Ligue 1 club and that has increased his value to £25 million, a fee that is cheaper than the £45 million being requested for Thomas Partey.

Mikel Arteta expects to part ways with Lucas Torreira and Matteo Guendouzi which makes him seek a new partner for Granit Xhaka with Thomas Partey as the major target but Morgan Sanson will be a good alternative and a great deal for the Gunners.

However, Arsenal are expected to submit an offer for Morgan Sanson in the coming days to open negotiation with the player and the club.
