Chelsea don't have the greatest history when it comes to signing German players.
Antonio Rüdiger has been a success at Stamford Bridge and fans will rightly be quick to point out what impact Michael Ballack had in west London, but the likes of Marko Marin and Sebastian Kneissl are just as famous for how uninspiring they were at Chelsea.
Show Him Onto His Right Foot
Waldschmidt has only just reached 100 senior appearances at club level and his career is still in its infancy, but fans in the Bundesliga know all-too-well not to let the Freiburg star onto his stronger left foot.
16 of his 19 first-team goals have come from his left foot, including all of Waldschimdt's strikes this season, while he hasn't scored on his right or with a header since May 2019.

He's earned a reputation for his ability from outside the area, but Waldschmidt's also shown he's more than capable when it comes to free kicks, while he's a bit of a specialist from 12 yards too.
Five of his six penalties at senior level have ended up in the back of the net, while he even followed up the one which he missed - against Wolfsburg during the 2017/18 season - to eventually get his name on the scoresheet.

He Loves a Late Goal
Waldschmidt is always a player to watch out for when opposition teams travel to the Black Forrest, but the Germany international really comes alive in the latter stages of a match.
12 of his 19 senior goals have come in the second half of games - another came in extra time in Germany's domestic cup competition - while he's only scored six in the first half throughout his first-team career.
Out of those second-half goals, six have come after the 80th minute.
Including youth level, Waldschmidt's scored 21 match-winning goals, although only six of those have come since he stepped up to senior football.
