The young Japanese forward signed for Mainz 05 in may 2015, rejecting a possible move to Chelsea in search of first team action. And boy was that a good decision by the youngster. The centre-forward has been flying in the Bundesliga and has scored 7 goals in 12 games. The forward also provided two great assists and creates many clear cut chances game after game. The relatively new and unknown Japanese footballer scored a mesmerising hat-trick against Augsburg in a 3-3 draw. The talented forward can also be deployed in the midfield as a winger or attacking midfielder, and has on many occasion played as a winger for the Japanese national squad. Mainz sit at the 8th position in the Bundesliga and have no one but Muto to thank for it.
