Utrecht and Genoa in the race to sign Modibo Sagnan from Real Sociedad

Santi Aouna reports today that Eredivisie side Utrecht have made an offer for Real Sociedad defender Modibo Sagnan, with Genoa also in the race but yet to make a counter-bid after entering talks.

The French centre-back, who played at this summer’s Olympic tournament, would move to the Dutch club on a loan deal including a permanent option – a format which the Serie A side also offered. Discussions are ongoing between the parties involved.

Sagnan joined the Basque club in 2019 from Lens, with the 22-year-old making a dozen appearances last season after undergoing two loan spells at his former club and then at CD Mirandés.
