Age: 21 years

Current Team: RB Leipzig
This week we have a striker from RB Leipzig who is always hungry to score goals.
He has been likened to Miroslav Klose because of the type of his goals and scoring prowess.
He seems to have that natural goalscoring instinct about him, anywhere near the box he is a major threat.
I like the way he places his shots.
He is fairly strong, very pacy and with his handiness of scoring Headers / his well-timed runs in behind the defence are very impressive.
He is really good off the ball, gets on the end of crosses converting well.
He is right footed but makes use of his left when needed.
Defences will have to be on full alert to stop him scoring.
At only 21 years of age, he is very promising and there is still much more to come from him.
He will work really hard chasing defenders down , inside the box he is very alert and capitalises well on loose balls to sniff out goals.
He is a threat from indirect set-pieces.
Weaknesses of his game are his Passing and giving away needless fouls.
His commitment is evident to see. He will always try his hardest to open up defences and he definitely has the talent to be a top striker within the next 3 seasons.
