Buchmann is widely considered - along with Arjion Ibrahimovic and Paul Wanner - to be among the top talents in the FCB developmental pipeline. Linkesch writes that the Bavarians are eager to get the teenager signed on a professional deal so that he may spend the summer working with head-coach Thomas Tuchel's professionals.
At the very least, Buchmann should spend the entirely of next season as a regular with FCB II. Linkesch nevertheless notes that one of the primary reasons why Buchmann is being promoted concerns his similarities in playing style to another former Tuchel protégée Julian Weigl. Tuchel fast-tracked Weigl to the pros during his time with Dortmund.
