I think you'll want to go and have a look at some video of his recent goals, and previous goals again, unless you haven't..
He's shown dribbling skills as good as some attacking mids, with his finishes being of top calibre, from both inside and well outside the box, both left foot and right foot, some spinning, under significant pressure, and challenge of multiple defenders..
6 goals 5 assists in his last world cup, 22 goals in last 20 for country and plenty more assists, shows he's a complete player still blossoming, and he'll be a full blown Sr. German International within 3 years if things keep as they are..
I'm not calling him Cavani, Falcao, Gomez or Van Persie, but for 1M, 18 y/o and playing at the best levels available to him, he looks that much better for us..

Giving an 18 year old the iconic number 9 shirt before he has even played a single game for the club would be unwise at best if not premature. Legends like Ian Rush, Robbie Fowler and even Fernando Torres have given cult status to that number and if this kid is any good then his time will come.
For the time being let him show us what is he is about with his number 36, at least it is divisible by 9, LOL.
