Demir broke into Vienna’s first team last season, starting one of his five appearances and scoring an assist.
Demir, who presents himself primarily as an attacking central midfielder but has been deployed on either wing or as a substitute center forward, is beginning to become an established first-team player for Vienna.
Vienna is still on a winter break from competitive action, but Austrian Under-21 Demir has made 17 first-team appearances this season, but only four have started.
Despite that, Demir has still managed to contribute four goals and two assists, a solid return for such a young talent.
Interest is certainly high, and wide, in Demir, it will be interesting to see which club the ace joins with his promising potential and ability, leaving him resigned to leaving Vienna in the near future.
