Fantastic season with Stuttgart, but apart from that he never really stood out.
94 Bundesliga games is not really impressive for a 26 year old.

I'm starting to wonder if we are thinking of ditching the inverted FB next season. It seems we are looking at a lot of inverted forwards/wide playmakers rather then touchline wingers. I actually like Führich but If we are looking for more of a creative minded wide playmaker on the left side i'm taking Beana.

He's played in his career:
LW - 80 played - 25 goal involvements
CAM - 29 played - 15 goal involvements
RW - 28 played - 18 goal involvements
RM - 23 played - 5 goal involvements
CM - 19 played - 9 goal involvements
Second Striker - 12 played - 3 goal involvements
LM - 8 played - 1 goal involvement
CF - 8 played - 4 goal involvements

So really he could be utilized anywhere in our system tbh, although last season he featured almost 100 percent at LW.

Although he's not a flashy dribbler he carries the ball frequently and better than most, and completes over 2 dribbles per 90.

To add to this. We also seem to be getting linked with numerous CB/FB hybrids who I simply don't see as being suited to invert the way porro and udogie did this season.

This is my issue about him, he's 26 and never really excelled to a level that would make the best teams interested. Don't get me wrong he's a clever player and i've enjoyed watching him this season along with others like Stiller, Undav, Millot etc. I just really don't think you can dismiss Sebastian Hoeneß's effect on that Stuttgart team. He has had a absolutely incredible effect on them. I know everyone is talking about Alonso and for good reason but honestly I actually think the job Hoeneß has done is just as impressive. I mean Stuttgart finished 2nd this season, last three seasons 16th 15th and 9th. I don't know if there is any gurantee you take any player out of that team and they perform to the same level they did this season elsewhere.

His dribbling style seems a little bit stiff and awkward and his touch is on the heavy side. Great long shots. He's had a good season but think there are far better options.

I mean I obviously am just reaching given the current links but we seem to be looking at a slightly different profile of winger at the moment. If we are willing to considering spending 68 mil on Eze then maybe that is what the thinking is and next season we see Udogie overlapping instead of inverting. Not sure what that would mean for Maddison's role as all four of Olmo/Eze/Baena and Führich like to drift into that left half space but that will be up to the manager to deal with.

I get that but I also agree. We haven't really been linked with a host of touchline 1v1 wingers like I expected us to given how much of a priority position it seems to be. Almost all are wingers that prefer to beat their man and travel inside the majority of the time. Which is fine however if udogie or porro occupy those spaces there won't be room.

I also feel we are getting linked with cms that might be more suited to us playing a double pivot rather than a singular #6. Anyway I digress.

As for fuhrich he's had an impressive season and I like his versatility. Although the coach has squeezed absolutely everything out of that team so it wouldn't be a certainty he'd carry that form elsewhere.

After loaning Werner and taking up another non-HG spot I don't really see this as a viable move.

Love him. 😍 Can play on the left or CM. Heard Chelsea want him though

Could definitely see some Chelsea fans getting a little confused and becoming very excited at the thought of the German Führich joining their club.

I kind of think so too. I think it's possible that the attack will look similar just rather than having, for example, Werner as the widest player and Udogie to his right, you could have Udogie as the widest player and then someone like Eze or Fuhrich to his right. Similar attacking shape with 5 players spanning the opposition's backline, just different types of players in the same positions. Could also be driven by the fact that there are a lot more gettable inverted forwards in the market this summer than there are touchline wingers.

Udogie and Porro can definitely play as more overlapping fullbacks, maybe better that way actually.

He's actually a very similar player as Perisic in my opinion, so if you liked how Perisic was contributing under Ange then you'd be happy with Fuhrich
