Florian Wirtz, Youssoufa Moukoko, Lazar Samardzic or Jan Thielmann: The list of talented young German players is huge. Some talents do not go a particularly conventional path and leave Germany at an early stage in order to develop further. Often these young legionaries slip out of the focus of local observers. That is why we have put together the greatest German talents abroad in this list.
In 13 games, the midfielder had three goals in the heart-decorated jersey of the Dutch. The German-Brazilian currently still belongs to FC Bayern Munich and will return in the summer, but his contract in Munich will expire at the same time. There is still no clarity about its future.
The only 18-year-old German goalkeeper is already a regular goalkeeper for Basel’s second team and has often been number two on the bench this season. Gebhardt can hope to become the goalkeeper of the Swiss top team in the medium term, as his rivals Heinz Lindner and Djordje Nikolic are not secure.
He is a German talent that even the greatest self-proclaimed scouting experts do not have on the list. In the autumn, the German-Lebanese moved to the island on the coast and was scheduled for the U-23. There he performed excellently and was appointed to the squad of the senior team. The former BVB player was allowed to sniff the Premier League for four minutes against Pep Guardiola and his men. The winger was also in the Seagulls’ squad in the following game. We will certainly hear a lot more about its further development.
Frauendorf is an indispensable component of the Reds’ U-18 on Merseyside and contributed four direct goals in ten missions. The 17-year-old attacking midfielder moved from TSG Hoffenheim to the working-class city of Liverpool in summer 2020.
Swiss players who are sent to Germany for training are absolutely not uncommon in football. But it also works the other way around. This is the case with Robin Kalem. The young man from Stühlingen on the edge of the Black Forest already played in the youth department as a midfielder for his current club, the Grasshoppers from Zurich. Kalem currently leads the table in the second division of Switzerland with the Hoppers. With twelve games out of 15 possible games, Kalem is already a real hit for an 18-year-old.
