Marseille are set to swoop for Nantes midfielder Valentin Rongier to replace Premier League-bound Morgan Sanson.

West Ham have been heavily linked with Sanson and the east Londoners are expected to complete a deal in excess of £25million to sign the 24-year-old after holding initial talks with the player’s representatives and Marseille earlier this month.

Marseille sporting director Andoni Zubizarreta has been searching for a replacement and reports say Rongier, who will cost at least £10million, is his top target.

Rongier made 43 appearances for Nantes in all competitions last season, scoring four goals and managing seven assists.
