TalentRadar Twitter New


Hamburg had a poor campaign last season, maintaining their Bundesliga status via the relegation play-offs. Coaches changed, hopes dropped but the only real positive that emerged from the season was the form of Turkish youngster Hakan Calhanoglu.

MID_CalhanogluThe 20-yr-old had a remarkable season scoring 11 goals across all competitions, including some absolute stunners; none more so than his 40 yard free-kick against Borussia Dortmund. His exploits earned him a lot of admirers, with a move eventually materialising. The midfielder has completed a move to another Bundesliga side, Bayer Leverkusen.

Calhanoglu told the club’s official website: “I’m very happy the transfer has gone through. Bayer 04 were keen to sign me and my aim from the start was to come here. Leverkusen are a great team.”

Calhanoglu has been given the #10 shirt at the club, signalling the importance they’ve placed on the young talent. Talent Radar will continue to track his progress.
