Although he is not the household name that Arsenal fans were so desperately craving over the summer - that came on deadline day with Ozil's arrival - Sanogo does possess the raw ability needed to make it in the Premier League.

The 20-year-old's size, imposing strength, speed and electric quickness has the potential to terrify defenders.

Still to fully develop, he is already very athletic and has drawn comparisons to another Premier League hot-shot - Aston Villa’s Christian Benteke.

Blessed with a good first touch - not just with his feet - Sanogo is very capable of holding the ball up with his back to goal and can use his muscle and explosive speed to burst past his defender and finish confidently.

Perhaps Walcott's injury will give Sanogo his chance to shine?
