How Josip Drmic will improve Borussia Mönchengladbach

Cologne – With the 2015/16 Bundesliga season just around the corner, we figured it prime time to take a closer look at some of the German top flight's most talked about summer signings.

Filling Kruse's boots?

Next up we focus on the Foals and their marquee summer signing Josip Drmic.

Due to the terms of his expiring two-year loan move from Bayer 04 Leverkusen, Gladbach already knew that they would lose Christoph Kramer this summer. What they had not necessarily reckoned with, however, was losing Max Kruse, the sure-fire German international whose departure had many perplexed as to who an adequate replacement would be. In Drmic, they managed to solve the problem swiftly with sporting director Max Eberl wrapping up the deal early on in the transfer window.
