Germany coach Joachim Low could include up to four talented youngsters in his squad for the Euro 2016 finals, according to Bild.
Speaking at the Laureus Sports Awards, the national team coach confirmed that he is thinking about some players who are not being tipped by the media to be on the plane to France.
Daily newspaper Bild has learned the names of the footballers in question and they claim Low has been in telephone contact with each and every one of them.
Bayern Munich defender Joshua Kimmich is expected to be in the final squad despite the fact that he has yet to be handed his Germany debut.
The 21-year-old has largely impressed playing for the Bavarians this season and he could be a good option at the back considering that Jerome Boateng and Benedikt Howedes are returning from lengthy injury lay-offs.
Bayer Leverkusen starlet Julian Brandt is the second uncapped footballer that could be playing at the Euro 2016, while Jonathan Tah and Leon Goretzka complete the list.
