De la bouche de Rémi Garde :— Nicolas A Martineau (@nikmartineauTVA) January 11, 2019
- Il n'y a eu AUCUN contact entre l'Impact et Umut Bozok.
- Il n'y a pas eu de contact non plus avec Yaya Sanogo. Le joueur a seulement été proposé par courriel à l'Impact... mais ce courriel est demeuré sans réponse. #IMFC
Sanogo, 25, has scored nine goals in 39 appearances with Toulouse since joining in 2017. Last season, he scored six goals in 27 league appearances. He has yet to score in five appearances this season.
In 2013 the striker signed with Arsenal as a highly rated young player who was prolific across French youth national team levels. He didn't quite stick with the London giants, scoring just once in 20 appearances for the club amid multiple loan moves.
