According to L’Équipe Belgian Jupiler League side KV Kortrijk are currently in negotiations for Lorient centre-forward Sambou Soumano (21) for a loan-to-buy agreement.
At the beginning of the summer, the Senegalese striker was supposed to play for Lorient – with a current contract that runs until 2024. But with Terem Moffi and Ibrahima Koné offering competition up-front, the 21-year-old could finally leave the Morbihan to look for game time elsewhere.
Soumano joined Les Merlus’ B side in 2022 from National 2 outfit Châteaubriant, and scored 13 goals in 11 appearances for the reserve side which earned him a call up to the senior side in last season by now former Lorient coach Christophe Pélissier – who left the club at the end of the season. The player made 21 appearances in Ligue 1 for Lorient and scored three goals in a three-game period at the end of January off the bench last season against LOSC, FC Nantes, and RC Lens.
