In short order Matthew Hoppe has earned the attention of US Soccer. The striker has five goals in 2021 and the hype around him is growing. His performances have not gone unnoticed around Europe though.

According to website 90min, the 19 year-old has gotten the attention of top teams in the Premier League. An article on the site notes that Tottenham, Liverpool, Manchester City and Manchester United have all scouted the player. In addition, sides in Italy and Spain have also been tracking him.

The American soccer development pipeline has taken off in recent months and seemingly every week a new youngster from the States is being linked to a big move. Hoppe clearly has a ways to go before pushing for a starting role at a top team in Europe from a Bundesliga basement dweller. However, his story goes to show that a player can make the most of whatever opportunity they get and possibly turn it into a big move in a short amount of time.
