The Norwegian has become the fastest man to score 10 Champions League goals and reaches the milestone in just seven games.

Jenas said to BT Sport: ‘He looks complete as a striker. He has the measure and he makes defenders angry with how strong he is. He hits the ball so hard that he doesn’t give keepers a chance.

“He just scores every type of goal. He has that talent and you can’t really coach that. His numbers do not appear in the charts. “

Hargreaves added: ‘He is always alert. He is in the right place at the right time.

“He may be 19, but he is a deadly person. The players they have there are not only young, but they will soon be the best in the world. “

The Leeds-born attacker scored 35 goals this season in 29 games, and his Signal Iduna Park support could be vital, giving Dortmund a valuable lead for the second stage in Paris on March 11.
