Yaya Sanogo struggled to find form at Arsenal, and consequently found regular first-team football hard to come by. He has certainly found form upon his loan move to Ajax though, even scoring a hat-trick in a pre-season friendly this past Monday (via Ajax.nl).
The French forward’s first strike was a simple tap in, but his second and third were well taken goals. On both occasions he latched onto through balls, sending him through on goal but still with plenty to do. He calmly slotted the ball past the keeper, completing his hat-trick in style.
It was only a friendly, so obviously means very little. Hopefully it’s a sign of things to come though, as the 22-year-old clearly has the ability to be a star.
Arsenal transfer news
It would be fantastic to see him return to the Emirates a better and more complete player, and a season at Ajax under none other than Dennis Bergkamp is a superb environment to do just that.
