Let’s take a look at the Bundesliga’s most exciting players ahead of the new season.
As the 2023-24 Bundesliga season approaches, football fans are eagerly anticipating the performances of some exciting players who are set to take the league by storm.
Here are five players to watch in the upcoming season.
Naby Keita – Werder Bremen
After a move from Liverpool to Werder Bremen on a free transfer, Naby Keita returns to the Bundesliga. Despite injury setbacks at Liverpool, Keita is determined to regain his best form in Germany. During his time at RB Leipzig, he showcased his skills as a versatile midfielder, excelling both as an enforcer and a provider. Keita’s presence in Bremen’s midfield is expected to create numerous opportunities for the team’s strikers, making him a key player to watch in 2023-24.
Benjamin Sesko – RB Leipzig
Tall and technically gifted, Benjamin Sesko is a promising talent who could transform RB Leipzig‘s attacking game. The 20-year-old Slovenian striker proved his goal-scoring prowess in the Austrian Bundesliga, finishing as the second-highest goal-scorer for Red Bull Salzburg. With his ability to find good finishing positions and his impressive link-up play, Sesko could be the key player Leipzig needs to bolster their attacking line in the upcoming season.
Václav Cerny – Wolfsburg
Injury-prone in the early part of his career, Václav Cerny has finally found form and consistency. The Czech winger enjoyed a breakout season at FC Twente, being involved in 24 goals with 13 goals and 11 assists in the Eredivisie. Cerny’s versatility, shooting prowess, and willingness to contribute defensively make him a valuable addition to Wolfsburg’s squad. His performance on the right wing could be crucial in Wolfsburg’s push for a higher position in the Bundesliga standings.
Lois Openda – RB Leipzig
RB Leipzig made a record transfer fee for Lois Openda from Lens to reinforce their attacking options. The Belgian striker impressed in Ligue 1, scoring an impressive 21 goals last season. What sets Openda apart is his versatility in scoring, with goals coming from his right foot, left foot, and headers. His pace and ability to create chances from a carry make him a dangerous forward in the box. Leipzig’s high-pressing style could suit Openda’s strengths, and he is poised to make a significant impact in the Bundesliga.
Giovanni Reyna – Borussia Dortmund
Despite facing injuries, Giovanni Reyna made a significant impact in the limited playing time he had last season. The young American showcased his exceptional productivity, being involved in nine goal contributions in just 611 Bundesliga minutes. Reyna’s goal-scoring abilities, combined with his creativity, make him a crucial asset for Borussia Dortmund’s attack. If he can stay injury-free, Reyna’s performances could be pivotal in Dortmund’s quest for the Bundesliga title.
