The impressive rise of FC Koln’s left-back Noah Katterbach has caught the eye of several top European sides, with scouts having been deployed to monitor the 19-year-old’s progress in the German domestic league. Kotterbach has already appeared for Germany’s under-20 side and is considered to be a long-term full international.
Katterbach burst on to the scene in 2019 for Koln’s side, having appeared 26 times for the side. Katterbach made his first appearance on the 5th October 2019, and later established himself in the side on a permanent basis. Koln this season have struggled in the Bundesliga, and there have been reports that Katterbach could be set for a move to a bigger side in the next few months, with Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich both monitoring the youngster’s progress.
Katterbach has rapid pace and acceleration, and similarly top stamina and strength credentials that are likely to make the youngster one of Europe’s elite full-backs.
Koln have slapped a 35 million euro valuation on the player despite his lack of first-team experience.
One of Katterbach’s best abilities is his dribbling and his on the ball skill. He is comfortable in possession and an excellent passer of the ball. He also enjoys getting forward to create attacking opportunity. There are few players in Europe who have the potential of the German youngster, and so he is certainly one of the players to watch out for.
