Nicolas Kühn arrived at the FC Bayern Campus from Ajax Amsterdam on loan to much fanfare as a winner of the Fritz Walter Gold Medal, given annually to Germany’s best young player, in 2019. Now that his six-month loan is over, Bayern Munich has seen more than enough to make the move permanent and reward Kühn with a three-year contract.
Kuhn, who played an integral part in Bayern II’s run to winning the third division championship, has also drawn praise for his performances with Germany’s U-20 team, scoring two goals in the four matches he’s played. Appearing in 16 games in the second half of the season, Kühn took on more and more responsibility as other players moved up to the first team.
Bayern campus manager Jochen Sauer had this to say about him: “He is a technically strong, agile player who fits in well with us and has his share in the championship. We expect a lot from him in the future.”
The future is definitely bright for the versatile forward, who is capable of playing both wing positions. He was given a new challenge this year and he stepped up and met it.
