Two-way midfielder, very capable in the high press. Has the creativity to play as a #10 as well, though unlikely to be elite there.
Deadly from free-kicks, accurate on corners as well.
Strong close control and passing, good finishing for a midfielder. Reads the game well, his positioning adds well to his defensive play. Smart soccer player, hides his own deficiencies well, can adapt to a variety of midfield roles and styles. Team player and capable leader.
Solid physical player but unspectacular. Little professional experience, untested, and still learning. Doesn't have super high ceiling (already 22). Doesn't speak German.
