Skysports.com understands a number of English clubs are keeping an eye on Hungarian striker Marko Futacs.

The highly-rated forward will be on British soil on Wednesday when Hungary's U21 side faces Wales in Haverfordwest.

A large collection of scouts are expected to be in attendance at the game, with Futacs the man most will be there to watch.

The youngster is currently on the books of German outfit Werder Bremen, who tied him down on permanent deal back in 2009.

Powerful

He has, however, only got one year remaining on his current contract with the Bundesliga outfit and they are prepared to listen to offers.

Futacs first came to the attention of English clubs during this summer's Toulan tournament, when he notched twice in two games for Hungary.

As a powerful frontman, who stands at six feet six inches tall, it is believed that he has all the attributes required to be a success in England.

Nottingham Forest are among those reported to be keen, but they will face competition from a number of rival sides for his signature.
