The 22-year-old German international plays his football for German side 04 Schalke in the Bundesliga, operating in a central midfield role with the ability to move forward and create.
The versatile central midfielder has been the subject of an awful lot of interest, but one club in particular who appeared in reports are Liverpool. As the Premier League side look to add some quality and potential to their midfield ranks with the possible departure of James Milner leaving space for the man.
If Liverpool can pull this off then they will be getting a top quality midfielder with the promise to become one of the world’s best.
After already becoming a regular in what is a quality packed German midfield, it looks as if he really is something special. Having played 8 games so far this season, he’s managed 4 goals from a midfield position as he looks to deliver a well-rounded display.
After seeing how impressive Emre Can has been since joining from the Bundesliga, why can’t another German make the switch to the Premier League to impress for the Reds?
