How Werder Bremen could line up for the start of the Bundesliga season

Here's how Werder Bremen's starting eleven could look from the start of the new Bundesliga season.
It has been a relatively quiet summer transfer window for Werder Bremen. 'The Green-Whites' have had to say goodbye to their captain as Max Kruse has joined Fenerbahce on a free transfer, but have otherwise largely managed to keep their team together.

Marco Friedl's loan deal has been turned into a permanent one while Niclas Füllkrug has completed a €6.5 million move to Weserstadion from Hannover 96.

Füllkrug almost spent the entire second half of last season on the sidelines due to a knee injury and could see Josh Sargent start at the expense of him from the beginning of the season after the youngster has impressed in pre-season.

Here's our predicted Werder line-up:

Jiri Pavlenka

Gebre Selassie
Ömer Toprak
Niklas Moisander
Marco Friedl

Nuri Sahin
Maximilian Eggestein
Davie Klaassen

Yuya Osako

Josh Sargent
Milot Rashica
