3 German starlets who could follow Mustafi to Arsenal

Jonathan Tah

Jonathan Tah is, like Weigl, another young player who could go on to become one of the world’s best in his position.

The defender is currently on the books at Bayer Leverkusen, but you sense that more good performances and regular call-ups to the German national squad is going to test Leverkusen’s resolve as they bid to keep the 20-year-old.

He has been labelled alongside John Stones and Raphael Varane as the ‘future of defending’, as he is a player more than comfortable with the ball at his feet, and capable of bringing the ball out of defence and launching attacks.

More importantly though, he is a very accomplished defender, and one many clubs, including Arsenal, should be keeping an eye on in January.
