He’s an up-and-coming stud as the starting keeper for the U.S. U-20s. Jonathan was a key part of the team’s run to the 2017 U-20 World Cup quarterfinals this past May in South Korea.

Today, Klinsmann signed a contract with Bundesliga side Hertha Berlin after a successful trial.

Oh, and he's also the son of German soccer icon and former U.S. national team coach Jurgen Klinsmann.

However, not only does Klinsmann have good hands, but he has good feet. And we’re not just talking good-for-a-goalkeeper-feet, no, this man’s got Jurgen Klinsmann kinda feet. Take a look at this technical strike he smashed in the upper 90 during training with Hertha.

Watch out, Christian Pulisic. There might be a new American wonderkid in the Bundesliga.

If he doesn’t find a spot between the sticks for the national team in the coming years, perhaps Klinsmann could get some time up top? His new club will be hoping he specializes in goalkeeping for now, but we can dream.
