West Ham are in talks to sign Marseille's Morgan Sanson, Sky Sports News understands.

Marseille are willing to listen to offers for some of their players after they failed to qualify for next season's Champions League.

Sanson, who Marseille value at around €35m, played 33 times for the French club last season, scoring five goals and getting three assists.

The 24-year-old signed for €12m from Montpelier in January 2017 and has made 18 youth caps for France
