Let's get a thread in early, why not, we'll quite likely need it later

Young attacking midfielder, he had his professional debut for Leverkusen just two weeks ago, being in the quad for the first time too, on which occasion he became the youngest ever player to feature in Bundesliga for Leverkusen - 17 years and 15 days old.

Before, that had been Havertz' record with 17 years 126 days.
(youngest ever Bundesliga player record is still held by Sahin who had his BVB deubt with 16 years 334 days)

Now barely 3 weeks later he scored this beauty against Bayern, making him the youngest ever goalscorer in Bundesliga. That's a record he was able to take from Sahin.
One to watch.

Kind of reminds me of a mix of KDB and Pedri.

Though I think his hype would increase a lot more if he was left footed. Dribbling midfielders who aren’t particularly fast never look as aesthetic when they’re right footed.

He was amazing today, admittedly against a team that great players are supposed to play very good against.
Besides all the things he can do like his dribbling, his final pass, his goals, whenever I watch him play it’s almost always his touch and link up play that stands out. Even if he has a poor game in terms of not scoring, or his dribbling and final pass not working, like a genuinely great player does he always links play so well and therefore never has a truly bad performance from what I’ve seen.
His positioning and the way he receives the ball and uses his first touch is like a cheat code for building attacks. Leverkusen players don’t even need to be good at passing the ball forward, they just need to kick it at him at any pace and he makes it stick. I genuinely don’t think I’ve ever seen an 18 year old receive the ball between the lines as effectively as he does.
But then again maybe , somehow, the bundesliga is doing its voodoo again. But I can’t see how he would flop in any league tbh

Hope he can still turn and dribble when he comes back. But he probably has much less potential now.
