Born in Dimbokro, in the Ivory Coast, Sanogo started his career in Tunisia and then went to Al-Ain FC in the UAE League, where he became well known for winning the AFC Champions League and being a top goalscorer in the UAE League.
Then, he was transferred to Hamburger SV in the summer of 2006. His time at Hamburg was poor as Sanogo was often criticized and booed by the fans because in 31 games for Hamburg he managed to score only four goals.
After the 2006–07 season, he switched to Werder Bremen for a fee of €4.5 million, which could have risen to €6 million.
On 27 January 2009, Sanogo was loaned out to TSG 1899 Hoffenheim until the end of the season after he not succeeded in establishing himself in the first team. In his first game, he scored the second goal in Hoffenheim's 2–0 win against Energie Cottbus. His performance was good that 1899 Hoffenheim wanted to sign him on a permanent basis but he returned on 1 July 2009 to SV Werder Bremen.
Since missing a chance joining 1899 Hoffenheim on a permanent basis, Sanogo joined on 19 August 2009 the French club AS Saint-Étienne with a three-year contract, the transfer fee was €3.5 million. He scored his first goal for Saint-Étienne in a 4–1 win over OGC Nice in the Coupe de la Ligue. During this season, he injured his thigh. He remained injured several months, accumulating physical problems. He was on trial at AJ Auxerre, but Auxerre was not convinced. He returned to ASSE, but he was no longer used by manager Christophe Galtier and on 3 March 2012, Sanogo was released from the club.
Following his release from Saint-Étienne, Sanogo and his family returned to Germany, where he eventually signed a deal with 2. Bundesliga club Energie Cottbus. In his league debut for his new club, he managed to score a brace during a 2–2 draw in the season opener against FC Ingolstadt 04.
During the summer of 2015, Sanogo signed for Indian Super League side NorthEast United, but was ruled out for the entirety of the 2015 Indian Super League season after suffering a quadriceps tear during training.
