The St Pauli-owned striker is reportedly being watched by Leeds United scouts.
Leeds United target Marvin Ducksch is turning his career around after a spell at Borussia Dortmund came to a disappointing end.
Ducksch, who the Mail reports has been watched by Leeds scouts, made his professional bow for the Bundesliga giants' second team - then managed by Huddersfield Town boss David Wagner - in 2012.
A year later, at the age of 19, the striker made his first outing for Jurgen Klopp's senior team, and was sent on loan to Paderborn the following campaign.
By the time he returned, however, Klopp - whom Ducksch described as a "great supporter" of his in an interview with Spox earlier this year - was gone, replaced by his old protégé, Thomas Tuchel.
"With Thomas Tuchel there was a new coach who was not interested in me," said Ducksch, via Spox. "Nobody talked to me, I had the feeling that nobody wanted me."
But Tuchel was not solely to blame for the 23-year-old's permanent exit - which came last summer after a prolific campaign back at Dortmund II - that is at least according to the player.
"I was very young, I made mistakes," said Ducksch, via Spox. "I have not behaved professionally enough. I have eaten a lot of fast food, drunk coke and liked to party."
But after 15 goals in 30 league games for loan club Holstein Kiel this calendar year, the St Pauli-owned player looks to have finally gotten his act together.
Perhaps Leeds will be future beneficiaries.
Should Leeds make a move for Ducksch?
