Timo Werner is not as pacey as Ibrahima Traore, one of the fastest players in the Bundesliga, but since Werner is more bulky, has better ball control and is German, Traore will need to find a new club.
The left wing now belongs to Werner, and even if he goes through a rough patch, expect Stuttgart rookie manager Thomas Schneider, who coached Werner at U-17 level, to give the teenager the benefit of the doubt.
According to German football expert Clark Whitney, Werner will end up being a No. 9.
Werner's finishing when he has dribbled his way through on goals has been precise, three goals from 13 shots.
Vedad Ibisevic, Stuttgart's leading scorer in the league, will be nudging Schneider and saying, "Keep playing the kid on the wings."
With Adnan Januzaj showing so much promise, do Manchester United need to sign someone on the left wing?
This is why signing Marco Reus might be beneficial to your FIFA 14 ultimate team, but in real life, it will stagnate Januzaj's progress.
Januzaj is to Manchester United what Werner is to Stuttgart.
