So far in his short career, Vagnoman has been able to make his mark at youth level for Hamburg despite not making his first team debut for the club thus far.

In total for Hamburg’s U-19’s and U-17’s, the German defender has been able to clock up a total of 41 appearances, scoring 11 goals in the process, an impressive return for a defender.

The defender has been known to be able to play all across the backline, with the 17-year-old even being deployed as a right or left winger on a few occasions.

Vagnoman has also been able to make his mark on the international stage as well, with the left-back amassing a total of three appearances for Die Mannschaft thus far.

Should all of Arsenal, Chelsea and Man City be serious about Vagnoman, it’ll be interesting to see if the player ends up with one of the Premier League giants in the near future.
