Oliver Burke is a Scottish prodigy who is considered to be the saviour of Scottish football and dubbed the new Gareth Bale. This is a huge weight to have on his shoulders, but at present it doesn’t look to be weighing him down.
After making waves for English Championship side Nottingham Forrest, Burke was linked with numerous top Premier League clubs in the summer as well as German powerhouse Bayern Munich. However it was another Bundesliga club which won the race for his signature. Red Bull Leipzig paid a hefty £13 million fee to take him to Germany. He had an explosive start for his new club, coming off the bench to assist the winning goal. Since then he is currently considered a squad player, either starting or coming on from the bench but he is expected to nail down a regular starting spot sooner rather than later.
Oliver Burke is currently sitting at a lowly 80 rating. This is very low for a player who is now a regular for the Scotland National team and also cost RB Leipzig that sizeable £13 million fee. As a result expect a healthy rise in the very near future, as well as seeing him steadily rise further over the coming season.
