Victor Boniface, a forward with Bayer Leverkusen, is a candidate for Rookie of the Month in the Bundesliga.
This summer, Boniface moved from Union St. Gilloise of the Belgian Pro League to Bayer Leverkusen.
The Nigerian player is regarded as one of the league’s best this season.
The 22-year-old had a productive August, with two goals and an assist in two games for Bayer Leverkusen.
Another nominee is SC Freiburg goalkeeper Noah Atubolu, who was born in Nigeria.
In August, Atubolu played three times for Freiburg in the league and kept one clean sheet.
Xavi Simons, a winger for RB Leipzig, is the other nominee.
