Player name: Thomas Muller
National team: Germany
Club team: Bayern Munich
Match scouted: Germany 4-1 England, 27 June 2010
Key moment: Showed good speed on the break and a powerful near-post finish to put Germany 3-1 up in the 67th minute. He again showed his pace and positional awareness to score Germany's fourth goal on a rapid counter-attack five minutes later.
Strengths: Pace, passing, he's a decent dribbler and is a fearsomely clinical finisher. Age - he's 20 - is on his side too.
Weaknesses: Naturally, his inexperience - sometimes goes for the wrong pass or dwells on the ball too long, but that'll improve with age.
Suitability: A very useful player, not just for his ability, but also because he can play in a variety of positions - anywhere in midfield or even up front.
Estimated cost: He's already in the Bayern first team and had an excellent season. We would need to spend £20m, but that could turn out to be a very shrewd bit of business.
