According to Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol, Newcastle United have been offered the chance to sign Marseille midfielder Morgan Sanson this summer.
The 24-year-old enjoyed a decent 2018-19 campaign – scoring five times and contributing three assists in 37 appearances in all competitions.
It does appear likely that the former France Under-21 international will be leaving his Ligue 1 side in this summer’s transfer window.
There are a number of Newcastle fans who have paid tribute to the quality of Sanson, suggesting that they want their club to secure his signature.
However, many others are not very confident when it comes to a possible summer deal as the problems off the field at St James’ Park continue to rumble on.
A selection of the Twitter reaction from the Newcastle supporters can be seen below:
And that’s us out. 35 million ?

I don’t want to sound cynical, but we definitely won’t get this one over the line

Good player but he costs actual money so I think Mike will look elsewhere
