New Toulouse striker Sanogo scored precisely zero goals in just 11 Premier League games spanning four seasons for Arsene Wenger‘s side.

Sanogo – best remembered for his four-goal haul against Benfica in the 2014 Emirates Cup – was shipped off on loan three times before joining the Ligue 1 side permanently this summer.

However, Dupraz has bizarrely suggesting he can AGAIN become of one the best players of the current era.

Dupraz said: “I am sure that Yaya Sanogo will become the player he was again.

“His body permitting, he is an excellent player.

“The president, Sadran, did a good job having the balls to bring him here because I am sure that he will become the player he once was again…

“One of the best attackers of his generation.”

The Frenchman joined Toulouse in the summer on a free… and has as yet failed to score in his two appearances for the Ligue 1 club.

Dupraz’s side currently sit tenth in the French top flight, with just 11 goals scored in their first ten games.
