Aston Villa move ahead of West Ham for Sanson
Sanson is closer and closer to taking the step up to the Premier League and Aston Villa will be his destination. 'Sky Sports' assure that the transfer from Marseille will be done for 15.7 million euros which could end up being 17.5 if certain objectives are met.
This piece of news implies that the Villains will pay less money than what West Ham had thought about offering, therefore it's good news for the club. It was suggested that the maximum figure they would agree to pay was 30 million, almost double.
The most likely final price is slightly higher than his market value, which ProFootballDB estimates at 14.7 million. Therefore it looks like an affordable deal for his possible future team and one that fits within the economic framework of the transfer window.
For Sanson, if his change of teams is confirmed, it will be his first experience in the Premier League. So far in his career, he has only played in France. This could be his chance to make himself known in the continent.
