Since joining Wolfsburg from Mainz at the beginning of this month, Ridle Baku has been used as a right-back, filling in for Kevin Mbabu and Willian, who are both injured at the moment.


Ideally, though, the versatile 22-year-old would like to play as a box-to-box midfielder.

"I can certainly play there. But I can imagine playing in midfield again at some point. I actually prefer to play as a number eight," Baku admitted in an interview with Sportbuzzer.

Baku and Wolfsburg take on Arminia Bielefeld on Sunday.
