The latest Premier League transfer talk as Villa and Wolves look to the summer window.

Aston Villa manager Unai Emery has reportedly made a firm decision on the long-term future of midfielder Morgan Sanson.

Football Insider have claimed Villa will ‘accept a cut-price offer’ for the French star to bring an end to what has been an underwhelming spell at Villa Park. Sanson joined the club in a £15.5m deal from Marseille during the January 2021 transfer window but has struggled to make an impact, scoring just one goal in 23 appearances before returning to France in January when he agreed to a loan deal with Ligue 1 club Strasbourg.

The 28-year-old has made nine starts in the last ten games but the report has suggested that will not be enough to secure him a second chance to impress at Villa Park and revealed Emery has made Sanson one of a number of first-team players that are ‘surplus to requirements’.

Wolves prepare bid for former Arsenal loan star

Wolverhampton Wanderers are reportedly keen to hand former Arsenal midfielder Dan Ceballos a second chance to impress in the Premier League.

The Real Madrid midfielder spent two seasons on loan at the Emirates Stadium, scoring two goals and providing five assists in 77 appearances in all competitions for the Gunners between August 2019 and May 2021.

However, he has struggled to find regular game-time since returning to Real and has made just 11 starts in all competitions for the La Liga giants so far this season. He is now entering into the final three months of his current contract and is widely expected to leave the club this summer.

90Min have now claimed Wolves are ‘readying an approach’ for a player that is likely to be ‘on the radar’ of a whole host of top clubs across Europe. However, the report also suggests the Molineux club are ‘acutely aware’ they must preserve their Premier League status if they are to convince to midfielder to join.
