Lothar Matthäus has urged Germany coach Joachim Löw to call up Atalanta's Robin Gosens for the national team.
Gosens, who can play at left-back and as a left midfielder, has made an impression on Matthäus with his performances for Atalanta over the past few seasons.
"With the affinity I have for Italy, Robin Gosens is no longer a nobody to me. He has been playing at a high level for two years. He's dangerous in front of goal, and I think he's capable of playing internationally. He has proven that in the Champions League," Matthäus, a former Inter player, wrote in a column for Kicker.
"I don't see why Löw shouldn't test him. He's very well trained tactically. That's why I would like to see him in the German national team," he added.
The 25-year-old has made 21 appearances for Atalanta this season, racking up seven goals and four assists.
