On the first day of the transfer window, Sochaux wrapped up the signatures of the fourth and fifth free signings of the window. Ibrahim Sissoko (26) and Saad Agouzoul (24) became the Ligue 2 club’s latest recruits.
Sissoko joins on a four-year deal after his contract at Ligue 2 rivals Niort expired at the end of last season. The Malian striker had scored 25 goals in 49 matches for the club since his arrival in the summer of 2019.
Upon the expiry of his contract with Lille, Agouzoul joins Sochaux on a three-year deal. The Moroccan centre-back joined Lille B in 2019, but has spent the vast majority of his time on loan. He only made 3 appearances for Lille B in the N2 during his stay in the north of France.
The club have been very active in the transfer window thus far, and prior to the double signing on the official opening day of the window, they had already sealed three free transfer signings. The Ligue 2 side are hoping to better their 2021/22 season during which they were defeated in the promotion play-offs.
