Josip Drmi? (Croatian pronunciation: [j?sip dmit?];[3][4] born 8 August 1992) is a Swiss professional footballer who plays as a striker for Premier League club Norwich City and the Switzerland national team.

Drmi? began his career with Zürich and moved to 1. FC Nürnberg in 2013. The 17 goals he scored in his first Bundesliga season earned him a transfer to Bayer Leverkusen, where he spent one campaign before being signed by Borussia Mönchengladbach. He had a loan at Hamburger SV in 2016.

A full international since 2012, Drmi? has earned over 30 caps for Switzerland, representing them at the 2012 Olympics and the 2014 and 2018 FIFA World Cups.

Early life

Drmi? was born to Croatian parents in Lachen in the canton of Schwyz, and is a dual national.[5]

He applied for Swiss nationality at the age of 16, taking the exam three times in front of commissioners in his home village of Freienbach. On the second attempt, he was rejected because he knew more about Zürich, where he had spent six years in a football school, than the village. He then hired a lawyer who made the case that this was acceptable as Zürich is nearby and of importance to the community.[6]

Club career

Zürich

Drmi? began his playing career at Zürich and rose through the youth ranks, soon playing regularly for Zürich's reserve team. He eventually made his league debut on 6 February 2010 against Neuchâtel Xamax, coming on as a substitute. He scored his first Swiss Super League goal in a 1-1 away draw against Luzern on 4 February 2012.[7]

During the 2012-13 season, Drmi? scored 13 goals in 31 Super League matches and 19 goals from 39 matches in all competitions.[8]

1. FC Nürnberg

In July 2013, Drmi? joined Bundesliga club 1. FC Nürnberg on a four-year contract.[9] On 18 August, he scored his first Bundesliga goal in a 2-2 draw against Hertha BSC.[10] He finished his first season with 17 league goals, the third most by any player in the league, behind Borussia Dortmund's Robert Lewandowski and Bayern Munich's Mario Mand?uki?.[11] However, his team was relegated to the 2. Bundesliga.[12]

Bayer Leverkusen

On 12 May 2014, Drmi? agreed to sign a five-year deal with Bayer Leverkusen, for an undisclosed fee.[13] He made his debut on 19 August as an 88th-minute substitute for Hakan Çalhano?lu as the side won 3-2 away against Copenhagen in the first leg of their UEFA Champions League play-off.[14]

Drmi? made his league debut on 12 September by replacing Stefan Kießling in added time of a 3-3 draw at home against Werder Bremen.[15] Nine days later, he scored his first goal for the team, starting and then equalising in the 29th minute of a 4-1 defeat at VfL Wolfsburg.[16] He added his first brace for the club on 29 November, as a half-time replacement for Stefan Kießling in a 5-1 win over 1. FC Köln.[17] On 13 March 2015, he added another brace for his fifth and sixth goals of the league season, in a 4-0 home win over VfB Stuttgart.[18] Drmi? was the only Leverkusen player to miss in the penalty shootout against Bayern Munich on 8 April; his attempt was saved by Manuel Neuer, which eliminated the team from the quarter-finals of the DFB-Pokal.[19]

Borussia Mönchengladbach

On 17 June 2015, Drmi? joined his third Bundesliga club, Borussia Mönchengladbach, on a four-year deal.[20] He made his debut on 10 August, starting in a 4-1 win at FC St. Pauli in the first round of the DFB-POkal. Five days later, he made his league bow in a 4-0 loss at Borussia Dortmund. Drmi? totalled only one goal from 19 matches across all competitions before leaving on loan. His only goal came on 28 November, a header as Mönchengladbach came from behind to draw 3-3 at 1899 Hoffenheim.[21]

On 1 February 2016, Drmi? joined fellow league team Hamburger SV on loan until the end of the season.[22] He debuted six days later, starting in a 1-1 draw with 1. FC Köln at the Volksparkstadion.[23] On 27 February, he scored the only goal of his loan, opening a home match of the same score against FC Ingolstadt.[24]

Following an absence through a knee injury, Drmi? made his comeback on 28 October 2017, playing the first 52 minutes of Borussia Mönchengladbach II's 3-0 home loss to SC Verl in the Regionalliga.[25]

Due to back injury and a muscle tear, Drmi? played only five times in the 2018-19 Bundesliga, scoring twice.[26]

Norwich City

On 25 June 2019, Drmi? joined Norwich City on a free transfer, signing a three-year deal. He was persuaded to join them by their Swiss defender Timm Klose.[26] He made his Premier League debut on 8 August, coming on as an 83rd-minute substitute for Teemu Pukki in a 4-1 loss at European champions Liverpool.[27] On 5 October, again as a late replacement for the Finn, he scored his first goal as consolation in a 5-1 home loss to Aston Villa.[28]

International career

Drmi? is a Swiss international, having played at under-19, under-21 and senior level.[29] He was a member of Switzerland's squad at the 2012 Summer Olympics,[8] and came on as a substitute in the last two matches as the team were eliminated in last place in Group B.

On 11 September 2012, Drmi? won his first cap for the Switzerland senior team in a 2-0 2014 FIFA World Cup qualifying win over Albania.[30] He scored his first two international goals in a 2-2 draw with Croatia on 6 March 2014.[31]

On 13 May 2014, Drmi? was named in Switzerland's squad for the 2014 World Cup.[32] He scored the only goal of the match in the 83rd minute from Blerim D?emaili's assist as Switzerland beat Jamaica in a warm-up match for the tournament on 30 May. In the first match of the tournament, a 2-1 win over Ecuador, he had a goal ruled out for offside and was substituted for Haris Seferovi?, who scored the winning goal.[33] Drmi? was dropped for Seferovi? for the second match, a 5-2 defeat to France, but returned and set up two of Xherdan Shaqiri's three goals in the 3-0 win over Honduras in the last group match in Manaus, which saw Switzerland advance to the knockout stage as group runners-up.[34]

Drmi? scored his first competitive goal for Switzerland on 14 June 2015, equalising in a 2-1 away victory over Lithuania in UEFA Euro 2016 qualifying.[35] On 5 September, he came on in the 64th minute for Blerim D?emaili, and scored twice as the Swiss came from 0-2 down to defeat Slovenia 3-2 in a qualifier in Basel.[36] After having knee surgery in March, he missed the final tournament.[37]

In qualification for the 2018 FIFA World Cup, Drmi? scored once, the sole goal of a victory over Latvia at the Stade de Genève on 25 March 2017. It was his first goal in any match since February 2016, heading an Admir Mehmedi cross two minutes after coming on in place of Gelson Fernandes.[38] Manager Vladimir Petkovi? named him for the squad to compete in the finals in Russia.[39] In the final group game against Costa Rica in Nizhny Novgorod, he came on as a late substitute for Mario Gavranovi? and scored in a 2-2 draw that ensured passage to the last 16.[40]

At the 2019 UEFA Nations League in Portugal, Drmi? was the only player to miss in the third-place penalty shootout against England, with Jordan Pickford saving from him in sudden death.[41]
