21-year-old Dennis Geiger, plays as a holding midfielder in Alfred Schreuder’s system and has made eight starts so far this campaign.
However, his eye-catching performances haven’t gone unnoticed, and Sport1 believe that Manchester City are among the interested clubs. It’s not made clear where Geiger would fit into the Premier League champions’ plans, following the club-record signing of defensive midfielder Rodrigo in the summer.
These reports claim Pep Guardiola is a ‘big fan‘ of the German midfielder, whose contract at Hoffenheim expires in 2022. So far this season, he has managed to rack up three assists in the league – something that Guardiola certainly demands of his midfielders.
Everton and Bayern Munich are also reportedly interested in the player, with the latter in particular having a recent track record of snapping up the brightest young Bundesliga talents.
