Karim Guede And Julian Schuster

Guede is a very good anchor man and as good workman like abilites and strenght very important player

Schuster is a more all round player and makes up for Guede's lack of speed and can take all set pieces will be very important and a creative spark

Max Kruse very good player potentially and can offer lots of positions and may be used to cover in left back if needed but will be my main cteative player mainly and is good off the ball.

Main Prospect Matthias Ginter

Very good young player will be hard to keep old of but will be a main stay for years if can be kept and is very good alongside Diagne. very important player and will be amazing if developed properly.

First and only sigining

with a lack of attacking talent i snapped him up as soon as i saw him as a lot to offer the team and a better finisher then any other player in the squad with good target man abilites also will be very important this season

Signed for my transfer budget at 1.2 million
