The Chalkboard: Sanson would leave Nuno with huge dilemma if he joins Wolves

Ahead of a second season in the Premier League, it wouldn’t be a huge surprise to see Wolves spending large sums of money on transfers.

Only a few months ago they confirmed the club record signing of Raul Jimenez for £30m whilst Adama Traore and Jonny arrived for £18m and £15m respectively last summer.

One of the latest big money names they’ve been linked with is Morgan Sanson.

The Marseille man has been offered to the club per Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol who claims the French outfit value him at €35m (£31.1m).

But if the Midlands side did decide to bring him to Molineux, where would he fit in?

On the chalkboard

Sanson is a brilliant technically gifted footballer who has the ability to play in a variety of different positions across the midfield.

During the 2014/15 campaign, he scored six goals for Montpellier in a season which saw him play on the right of midfield, as an attacking midfielder and slightly deeper.

However, his attacking threat has been limited significantly after signing for Marseille.

Last term, the 24-year-old played in the number ten role on just two occasions as he featured in 11 matches as a holding midfielder whilst playing the rest from a standard central position.

Therefore, there are a number of spots he could feature in if he joins Wolves. Bearing in mind his attacking and defensive traits, he’s the ideal Nuno Santo midfielder.

In some aspects he compares to Ruben Neves, but in others he’s more like Joao Moutinho.

With Nuno favouring a three-man midfield towards the back end of last season, it’s difficult to see the pair of them and Sanson all starting in the same side.

As a result, Nuno would be left with one of the biggest selection dilemmas he’s had since walking through the doors at Molineux.

Deciphering whose role he could take is difficult, but considering Moutinho is now 32 he could be the man to eventually make way.

In games where Wolves struggle to break down their opposition, fielding Sanson in an attacking role he flourished in for Montpellier could also be on the cards.

Either way, the addition of the Frenchman would certainly improve the overall look and feel of Nuno’s side.
