Jamie Bynoe-Gittens

Club: Borussia Dortmund
Position: Midfielder
Value: 1M

Bynoe-Gittens, 17, emerged on the first-team scene at Dortmund towards the end of 2022/23, making one start and three substitute appearances. Now a full-time member of the pro squad, the ex-Manchester City youngster will vie with the likes of more established attacking midfielders Marco Reus, Gio Reyna, Julian Brandt and Thorgan Hazard for regular first-team minutes. Happily for the England U19 international, he's exactly the type of player - a quick and direct winger partial to a bit of chicanery - BVB have so sorely missed since Jadon Sancho's summer 2021 departure. Three goals and four assists in eight games for Dortmund's 2021/22 U19 Bundesliga winners provide a glimpse of the taker-maker potential that made Sancho such a hit. And, for now at least, he'll only set you back 1M.

Simon Terodde

Club: Schalke
Position: Forward
Value: 4M

Bynoe-Gittens was only six when Simon Terodde made his professional debut back in 2009. Over 10 years on, the veteran striker could be facing off against the Dortmund teen in the Revierderby. Schalke's return to the big time owes much to last season's 30-goal Bundesliga 2 top scorer. Without his input, the Royal Blues could have been in the region of 25 points worse off, and still in the second tier. The veteran's next big challenge is to replicate his record-breaking Bundesliga 2 goal-scoring habit in the Bundesliga. Terodde's previous 58 top-flight outings have yielded just 10 goals compared to his 172 in 283 games in Bundesliga 2, topping out at five in 2017/18. He's a bit of a gamble, but frees up funds elsewhere and imagine the pay-off if he can hit double figures in front of goal.

Niclas Füllkrug

Club: Werder Bremen
Position: Forward
Value: 5M

Niclas Füllkrug (5M) tied teammate Marvin Ducksch (6M) on 19 goals during Werder Bremen's promotion-winning campaign. He also racked up 118 shots on goal - as many as Terodde and 22 fewer than Dücksch - whilst finishing the season eighth league wide for challenges won (386). The 29-year-old won't be phased by the top flight either, having scoring 28 goals in his previous 98 Bundesliga appearances, including a personal-best 14 for Hannover in 2017/18. If that isn't the formula for a successful season in a Fantasy sense, we don't know what is.

Daniel-Kofi Kyereh

Club: Freiburg
Position: Midfielder
Value: 5M

Daniel-Kofi Kyereh did everything he could to get St. Pauli out of Bundesliga 2, but the leaders at halfway faded badly during the second half of the season, ultimately finishing six points adrift of the automatic promotion places. Kyereh's efforts didn't go unnoticed, though; the Ghana international's career-best 12 goals and 10 assists earning a move to Christian Streich's Freiburg. Double digits on both counts from midfield is no mean feat, making him a potentially profitable alternative to Freiburg talisman Vincenzo Grifo, who begins the new season with a 13M price tag. Kyerah, meanwhile, comes in at a relative bargain basement 5M.

Oliver Christensen

Club: Hertha Berlin
Position: Goalkeeper
Value: 4M

Oliver Christensen's contribution to Hertha's 2021/22 season totalled two matches - the two-legged relegation play-off victory over Bundesliga 2's Hamburg that saved the Old Lady's bacon. With Marcel Lotka moving to Borussia Dortmund over the summer, Alexander Schwolow heading to Schalke on loan, and Rune Jarstein further down the Hertha pecking order, the path is pretty clear for Christensen to seize the No.1 jersey.

Assuming he does, the one-time Denmark international - still only 23 - will be Bundesliga Fantasy's cheapest starting goalkeeper.
