In the hunt for a replacement for French midfielder Baptiste Santamaria, who left Le SCO for SC Freiburg in a €15m including bonuses deal, Ligue 1 club Angers are looking to Portugal and have notably set their sights on Sporting Portugal midfielder Idrissa Doumbia, according to L’Équipe.

Sporting Director Sébastien Larcier is recommending to his board that they bid for the 22-year-old, who made 35 appearances for Sporting Portugal last season, notably 8 of those coming in the Europa League.

Initial enquiries have made for the player, with Sporting indicating that they want €10m. Angers have also been offered 24-year-old Paços de Ferreira midfielder Mohamed Diaby.
