Hakan Calhanoglu would be perfect for the Premier League

Given Germany's rise to dominance at international level, the Bundesliga has, in recent years, been responsible for the development of some of the game's most exciting talents.

Mario Gotze, Thomas Muller, Marco Reus and many others have all progressed through the ranks in German football and remain in the top division, and are expected to for some time.

But which players are next off the production line? And can we expect to see them in the Premier League at some point in the future?

1) Hakan Calhanoglu

A Turkish, set piece specialist who is an attacking midfielder for Bayer Leverkusen, he has been immense for his new side this season after his summer move from Hamburg SV.

The 21-year-old has 10 goals in all competitions this term, along with eight assists. He is a calming influence on the ball for Leverkusen, and can dictate play for the German side.

2) Alexandru Maxim

At 24-years-old, Maxim is the oldest player in our list. Playing the same role as Calhanoglu, Maxim is known more for skill and dribbling to set up chances from midfield.

The VFB Stuttgart playmaker has been a bright spark in what has been a dismal season for his side, who currently sit rock bottom of the Bundesliga. The Romanian would thrive in the Premier League, and would excite fans with his tricks.

3) Timo Werner

Our second VFB player on this list turned just 19-years-old earlier this month. But the talented young German is already one of the first names on the Stuttgart team sheet, making over 20 appearances in the Bundesliga.

Predominantly a wide player, Werner posses blistering pace and has cause problems for even the best defences in Germany. Werner is a real fan favourite at the Mercedes-Benz Arena, and is tipped for a big future at both club and international level.

Would you like any of these players at your club? Where do you think their style of play would fit in? Let us know in the comments!
