“What’s Next for Leverkusen’s Rising Star Florian Wirtz After Recent Bundesliga Market Value Update?”

By FPL360


Florian Wirtz’s triumphant return to the pitch after his ACL injury has been nothing short of remarkable. The 19-year-old Bayer Leverkusen star has been a major driving force behind the team’s resurgence, helping them climb back up to the top six of the Bundesliga and even finish fifth in the league.

Since his return from injury, Wirtz has scored three goals and made eight assists across all competitions. In the Bundesliga, he has managed six assists in just 11 games, putting him on par with Bayern Munich’s Thomas Müller, who managed the same amount in 20 appearances.

Among U20 players, only Jamal Musiala (Bayern), Youssoufa Moukoko (Dortmund), and Jude Bellingham (Dortmund) have had more scorer points than Wirtz. Transfermarkt recently updated his market value from €70 million to €85 million, making him the third most valuable player in the Bundesliga.

Wirtz’s excellent performances have also been reflected on the pitch. Bayer Leverkusen has won their last five games in a row in the Bundesliga, even beating league leaders Bayern Munich. Since Wirtz returned to the squad, Leverkusen has only lost three games in the Bundesliga.

Thanks to Wirtz’s impressive performances, the Spain legend Xabi Alonso has been able to establish Leverkusen as the third-best squad in German football, behind the dominating force of Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund.

Wirtz’s return has also raised questions about his future. Barcelona has been mentioned as one potential landing spot, but Wirtz has downplayed that link. Transfermarkt understands that Wirtz will stay put next summer and could instead focus on a transfer in the summer of 2024. Regardless of where Wirtz ends up, he will undoubtedly have a wide range of top teams interested in his services.

In conclusion, Wirtz’s return from an ACL injury has been nothing short of a miracle. His performances on the pitch have been outstanding, sending Leverkusen soaring up the league tables. His market value has increased significantly, making him one of the most valuable players in the Bundesliga. The future looks incredibly bright for this young star, and as he continues to develop, we can expect to see him play for many more years at the highest level of European football.
