Bayern Munich hot on the trail of Borussia Mönchengladbach's Sinan Kurt

17-year old Sinan Kurt is the most recent apple of Matthias Sammer's buying eye

Oliver Hardt

With the transfer season heating up, and the Bayern Munich reserves fighting for promotion, it's only natural that Matthias Sammer would be out scouting and snatching up youth prospects for the Bayern Munich youth system. And one would expect him to approach this process with the same gusto, savvy, and sharkishiness he brings to every interview and game.

Enter 17-year-old Sinan Kurt, the Borussisa Mönchengladbach prospect. The youngster has spent his last season playing in the A-Jugend Bundesliga West with the 'Gladbach U19 side, where he logged 16 goals and 3 assists in 25 appearances. That after a two season span where he registered an astonishing 31 goals and 21 assists with the "Gladbach U17 side. It's not just club form, but also his youth international pedigree that's impressive, as the 17-year-old has represented Germany at all youth levels including 24 appearances and 6 goals over 3 years with the German U16/U17/U18 national teams. With an already ripe pedigree for his age, it's not wonder that with Matthias Sammer came sniffing around, and courting the youngster, 'Gladbach sporting Max Eberl has become a little hot and bothered under the collar.

And with skills like these (set to the music of Macklemore), it's easy to get excited in any way with this prospect.
