#6 Ramy Bensebaini
Borussia Monchengladbach didn’t match their previous high standards this term, as they finished the year in eighth and fell well short of title contention.
Bensebaini nevertheless continued his progress with a solid campaign, and also chipped in with some goals too—netting four across 25 league outings.
His goal and performance in the 4-2 victory over Borussia Dortmund was among Gladbach’s season highlights.
#5 Felix Uduokhai
The towering young defender remains uncapped by Nigeria, although having been called up by Germany for their senior side in late 2020, the Super Eagles need to move fast.
He was a solid operator for Augsburg this season, demonstrating his aerial menace and his quality with the ball at his feet regularly as the Fuggerstadter evaded relegation.
The 23-year-old’s season ended early due to a ankle injury, but he should return stronger next term. However, having been linked with a move to Dortmund, will he still be at Augsburg by then?
#4 Edmond Tapsoba
The centre-back has continued on an upwards trajectory this season, and is now reportedly being targeted by Arsenal ahead of a potential big-money summer move.
Bayer Leverkusen are confident they can keep hold of him—for now—but having impressed in the Europa League, as well as the Bundesliga, the Burkina Faso stopper will likely continue to attract admiring glances.
#3 Ridle Baku
Such an eye-catching presence up and down Wolfsburg’s right flank, Baku made his Germany debut this season—representing the European heavyweights in a friendly against the Czech Republic.
The 23-year-old, who is also eligible for the Democratic Republic of Congo, offers versatility, sensational pace, and is comfortable with both feet.
He’s another player who might pique the interest of Arsenal, who could be seeking a long-term replacement for Hector Bellerin.
#2 Christopher Nkunku
Excellent for RasenBallsport Leipzig last term, Nkunku continued in the same vein this season as he continues to establish himself as one of the German new boys’ greatest ever signings.
The 23-year-old’s numbers dropped this season—six goal involvements fewer than last term—but he nonetheless reaffirmed his status as one of the league’s most creative talents.
The Franco-Congolese talent created—on average—2.5 goalscoring opportunities per match this term; with only Filip Kostic, Thomas Muller and Jadon Sancho averaging more.
#1 Silas Wamangituka
What a campaign it was for the 21-year-old, making his first steps in a top flight division, as he netted 11 goals for Stuttgart.
Only ten players netted more than him in the Bundesliga this season, and he appeared to be a natured fit for such rarefied climes.
The highlight was his double against Werder Bremen in December—where he was booked for taunting the opposition goalkeeper—while his stunning effort against Mainz in January was also evidence of his talent.
Unfortunately, the youngster’s campaign was cut short due to an anterior cruciate ligament injury.
