How Yoshinori Muto will improve 1. FSV Mainz 05

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.

A record that adds up

Next on the list is the latest Japanese addition to the Bundesliga, 1. FSV Mainz 05's Yoshinori Muto, signed from FC Tokyo.

"We've got some missiles down our wings now," said Mainz coach Martin Schmidt, referring, among others, to Muto, who showed already at his unveiling that he is quick on the draw, impressing with a few sentences in German. If that is a sign of things to come, Mainz might well have struck it rich with the diligent forward.
