bundesliga.com takes a look at some of the budding stars destined for big things in the not too distant future...
After a chat with mentor Jürgen Klopp last summer, Borussia Dortmund reserve team striker Durm decided to retrain as a full back. Before long, the nimble 21-year-old was making waves at the Signal Iduna Park, with his assist in BVB's UEFA Champions League group stage win over Olympique de Marseille leaving his coach with plenty of food for thought in the left-back department. No wonder the club were so keen to tie his services down until 2017.
Werner wasted no time adding his name to the Bundesliga annals, scoring in Matchday 6's 1-1 draw against Eintracht Frankfurt at the tender age of 17 years and five months, making him VfB Stuttgart's youngest-ever Bundesliga scorer and the third-youngest in the league behind FC Schalke 04's Julian Draxler and Dortmund's Nuri Sahin. Since then, he has gone on to establish himself as one of the first names on head coach Thomas Schneider's team sheet.
Florida-born Green is now training with FC Bayern München's first team after taking his competitive bow in the UEFA Champions League group stages against CSKA Moskva last November. Having scored 15 times in 18 appearances for the reserves this season, the 18-year-old continued his promising rise through the ranks during the winter break, scoring in the Bavarians' 2-0 friendly win over Qatari outfit Al-Merrikh SC.
1899 Hoffenheim defender Süle made the world stand up and take note when he scored the opening goal in an eventual 2-1 defeat to Bundesliga leaders FC Bayern München on Matchday 11 of the current campaign. The 18-year-old has started eleven of the Sinsheimers' 17 league outings so far this season and has represented Germany's U-16s, U-17s, U-18s and U-19s a total of 34 times.
Trier-born Kohr made just two Bundesliga appearances for parent club Bayer 04 Leverkusen during the Hinrunde, but will be hoping for a much larger piece of the action following his 18-month loan move to eighth-placed FC Augsburg. The son of former 1. FC Kaiserslautern striker Harald Kohr, the 19-year-old holding player has been on the winning side in all eight of his top-flight run-outs to date.
