The Daily Express says the former French under-21 international has been tracked by a whole host of Premier League clubs over the last year. West Ham, Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, Southampton and Everton have been keeping close tabs on him. Ancelotti has been interested in Sanson since he was in charge of Italian outfit Napoli and was expected to move for him during the January transfer window. But Marseille blocked all interest and said that they expected him to stay until the end of the season. Sanson has now told the Ligue 1 outfit that they need to keep their end of the agreement and let him leave in the summer.”
