Club careerEdit

Bauer joined FC Ingolstadt in 2014 from Karlsruher SC. He made his 2. Bundesliga debut on 31 October 2014 against Fortuna Düsseldorf replacing Alfredo Morales at half-time in a 0–0 away draw. He scored his first Bundesliga goal from his first shot of the campaign against Darmstadt 98 on 22 November 2015.[4]

On 23 August 2016, Bauer signed for Werder Bremen.[5]

On 5 July 2018, it was announced that Bauer was loaned to 1. FC Nürnberg for the 2018–19 season. Nürnberg secured an option to sign him permanently at the end of the season.[6][7]

In June 2019, upon his return from loan at Nürnberg, Bauer was released from training at Werder Bremen.[8]

On 20 August 2019, he signed a long-term contract with Russian club FC Arsenal Tula.[9]

International careerEdit

Eligible to represent Germany or Kazakhstan, Bauer revealed that he had rejected an offer from the latter in February 2015 in hopes of representing Germany.[10] The next month, he received his first call-up to the Germany U20 side and represented them at the FIFA U-20 World Cup in New Zealand that summer.

He was part of the squad for the 2016 Summer Olympics, where Germany won the silver medal.[11]
