Lukas Klostermann

Date of birth: 03/06/1996

Club: RB Leipzig

Position: Right-back

Bundesliga appearances so far: N/A

Germany Under-21 right-back Klostermann started all but four of promoted Leipzig's 34 Bundesliga 2 assignments last season. Winning only 48 per cent of his attempted challenges, the 20-year-old still has ample room for improvement, although he did impress on a regular basis with his enterprising forays into opposition territory, notching one goal and four assists.

Bundesliga wingers will demand much more of him defensively, but his general performance levels over the course of only his second full season as a professional showed him to be a quick learner with bags of untapped potential.

Breel Embolo

Date of birth: 14/02/1997

Club: FC Schalke 04

Position: Forward

Bundesliga appearances so far: 1

Courted by a host of big-name suitors, Embolo represents a real coup for Schalke. The 19-year-old moves to the Bundesliga having won three successive Swiss Super League titles with FC Basel 1893 and with significant experience behind him on the European stage for club and country.

After posting a career-best return of ten goals and ten assists in 27 league outings last term and featuring in all four of Switzerland's games at UEFA EURO 2016, the commanding forward can expect to see plenty of playing time in 2016/17.

Ousmane Dembele

Date of birth: 05/05/1997

Club: Borussia Dortmund

Position: Right wing

Bundesliga appearances so far: 1

Dembele has not been around for long, but he already goes about his work with the confidence and quality of a seasoned professional. The 19-year-old France Under-21 international finished top scorer for Ligue 1 outfit Stade Rennais FC with 12 goals in 26 appearances in 2015/16, and that after waiting until Matchday 14 to be handed his full debut.

His style appears unhurried at first glance, but do not let that fool you. His lithe runs and ever-improving end product will be a real boon for Thomas Tuchel's new-look Dortmund.

Renato Sanches

Date of birth: 18/08/19967

Club: FC Bayern München

Position: Central midfield

Bundesliga appearances so far: N/A

"I talked to Bayern about Sanches three months ago and agreed that he's exactly what we need," admitted FC Bayern's new head coach Carlo Ancelotti upon his arrival in Bavaria. High praise indeed of a youngster who is set to battle for position with the likes of Arturo Vidal, Xabi Alonso and Thiago Alcantara.

Despite the powerful, ball-carrying midfielder enjoying a strong season with SL Benfica in which he gained invaluable experience, the move was still seen as a risk by many. However, the German record titleholders' investment already seems a prudent one. Since the move was confirmed, Sanches has won a domestic double, been hailed as one of Portugal's heroes at UEFA EURO 2016, where he became the youngest-ever winner of the tournament, and was named as UEFA's Young Player of the Tournament. Sanches, it seems, will not have too many problems slotting into Bayern's star-studded line-up.

Alen Halilovic

Date of birth: 18/06/1996

Club: Hamburger SV

Position: Midfielder

Bundesliga appearances so far: 1

Nearly all of Europe's top clubs were on the trail of Croatia's all-time youngest debutant when FC Barcelona won the race to sign him from Dinamo Zagreb back in 2014. His talents were spotted at a very young age and he debuted for Dinamo Zagreb just 101 days after his 16th birthday, scoring his first goal just 11 days later. He soon became the second youngest player to appear in a UEFA Champions League fixture, and his bow with the national team as a 16-year-old soon followed.

Although unable to hold down a regular start in Barca's star-studded team, Halilovic did make a few appearances in the cup before being loaned out to Sporting Gijon in 2015/16. A regular in their side, HSV pounced on the chance to bring him to the Bundesliga, an ideal league for promising young players to unfurl. With goals on his DFB Cup debut, Halilovic has already hit the ground running in German football.
