According to A Bola, Sporting B are set to strengthen their attacking options with the surprising signing of Ousmane Dramé from Padova.
The Frenchman had spent the start of this season on loan at Venezia but failed to make an impact and, after an initially promising youth career (once linked with big clubs like Arsenal and Fiorentina), he seems to have stalled in his development. Yet Sporting seem to think they can help his potential grow as, according to the Portuguese newspaper, he will be signing a 5-year contract with a €45m release clause at the end of this month.
Ousmane Dramé has spent other loan spells at Ascoli and Empoli but is far more famous for stealing a purse from a prostitute.
With Salim Cissé on loan at Arouca and Betinho seemingly set to join teammate João Mário on loan at Vitória de Setúbal it leaves Sporting B light in options in attack – although Dramé is more frequently utilised as a right winger.
