The 20 year-old striker scored 2 goals, and provided 2 assists for Lille in the month of September this year.

Just in his first season with his French club, the former Wolfsburg striker who was recently also named Lille player of the month for September has been in top form, scoring seven goals in nine league games for Lille this season and also in contention for the European Golden Boot.
