In a somewhat surprising turn of events, the Bundesliga has actually been fairly interesting this year. A league that is usually dominated by Bayern Munich, the Bundesliga was known for knowing the champion even before the season. However, as things currently stand, Borussia Dortmund could be just six points behind the Bavarians, should they win their game in hand. Also, a total of four teams are fighting for the coveted fourth spot, including surprise additions in Union Berlin and SC Freiburg. With an exciting season come incredible players, and the Bundesliga has had no shortage of them. On that note, here are three players who could win Bundesliga Player of the Year for 2021-22.

Bundesliga POTY contenders for the 2021-22 season

Florian Wirtz 

A huge reason behind Bayer Leverkusen occupying the third position, with six points more than fourth-placed RB Leipzig, is German youngster Florian Wirtz. Bayer has had some poor seasons in the past few years, most notably the 12th place finish in the 2016-17 season. However, even through some down years, they were always able to produce and cultivate talent. Even though Wirtz was originally from FC Koln, he is another youngster that was given the chance by Bayer Leverkusen and one that should bring them a ton of money in the transfer market. His burst onto the Bundesliga and global football scene has been great to watch and while he made his debut in May of 2020, the last two seasons were especially impressive.
