5. Moussa Diaby (Bayer Leverkusen)
The second player on this list to have made the move from PSG this summer, Moussa Diaby has thus far made just one substitute appearance in the Bundesliga – in Bayer Leverkusen’s 3-1 win at Fortuna Dusseldorf – but is tipped for a bright future.
Upon Diaby’s arrival, he was immediately raised as a possible replacement of Julian Brandt but, considering the former Leverkusen star spent the second half of last term in a more-central role, the 20-year-old’s impact could perhaps come in a more indirect manner.
With Brandt now at Borussia Dortmund, it has been Kai Havertz who has been deployed as the most-offensive of the three central midfielders in the past two weeks and there is sentiment among some that he will eventually settle in the No. 10 role. That does leave a gap to fill in the right attacking berth and, although it has thus far been filled by Karim Bellarabi, Diaby looks like someone who only needs one chance to show what he is capable of.
