The 23-year-old has scored six goals in 16 appearances for the German club this season, but his campaign has been disrupted by several injuries since October. At the European Under-21 Championship last summer, Waldschmidt ended as the tournament’s top scorer with seven goals and was nicknamed ‘Il Bomber’ in reference to Germany legend Gerd Muller. Waldschmidt was subsequently given his senior debut for Germany and now has three caps for the national side.”
