French Ligue 2 side Sochaux are interested in signing Ghanaian forward Jonah Osabutey on loan from Bundesliga outfit, Werder Bremen.
Osabutey, 21, last season featured on loan at Belgian Jupiler League side Royal Mouscron where he won the Player of the Year award, but his parent club did not allow them to trigger his buyout clause.
young prospect is seen as the future of the “River Islanders” and they want to give him out again as he continues his development at a good level.
Graphic Sports Online can exclusively reveal that talks have already started between French side Sochaux and Werder Bremen on the Ghanaian and the former made a bid of 200,000 Euros on Thursday to take him on loan for one season.
Sochaux are currently looking for a striker following a long-term injury to Yann Litala and their manager, Omar Daf, is keen on signing Osabutey to fill the void.
Osabutey joined Bremen in January 2017 from Tema Youth and he featured for the club’s under-19 side before being promoted to the second team in 2019 following which he was loaned out to Mouscron.
