Arsenal scouts feel Ousmane Drame could be an instant hit should he make the move to England.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is in regular contact with the Padova attacker's agent, George Atangana, about the 18 year-old.

Despite his tender years, Drame's physique makes him ideally suited to the Premier League and observers say even at this early stage of his career, he would have no problem handling the physical demands of English football.

Drame can play as a striker, but favours the right-wing and his pace and power has drawn comparisons with Bayern Munich star Franck Ribery.
