Azankpo has had a journeyed career which included a season at League Two Oldham in 2019-20, where he scored just four goals in 28 league games.

In doing so he gained a label as “one of Oldham’s worst strikers in memory”, according to the Daily Mail.

Most recently he scored one goal in 17 games at Ligue 2 side Dunkerque last season, before joining FC Dinamo 1948 on loan where he scored one goal in two games.

Yet he has managed to bag a two-year contract with the German champions following a successful two-week trial.

Azankpo joined Mane when he completed his move to Bayern and posed for photos at the forward’s unveiling.

He has reportedly driven Mane to training sessions, leading to speculation he has only been offered a deal because of the forward.

The pair first met at an academy in Senegal at the beginning of their careers before both made the switch to Metz.

From there Mane’s career skyrocketed with a move to RB Salzburg followed up by transfers to Southampton and Liverpool.
