David Raum (born 22 April 1998) is a German professional footballer who plays as a left midfielder or left back for Bundesliga club 1899 Hoffenheim and the Germany national team.
Raum was born in Nuremberg and started playing football at the local club Tuspo Nürnberg at the age of four. At the age of eight he was scouted to the youth academy of SpVgg Greuther Fürth in the neighbouring town and progressed through their youth teams.
As an under-19 player, Raum gained his first experience in the senior sides and was part of the first team from the 2017–18 2. Bundesliga season. In the first two rounds of the 2017–18 DFB-Pokal he scored in both games, but did not make it to the final round with his team after a defeat against FC Ingolstadt 04. In addition, Raum made 20 appearances in at second-highest German level and mainly played as a substitute in the following seasons. His contract, which was set to expire in June 2020, was extended with an option for an additional year in May 2020.
After the 2020–21 season, in which Greuther Fürth won promotion to the Bundesliga, Raum moved to Hoffenheim as a free agent, after having signed a pre-contract with the club in January 2021. He signed a four-year deal with Die Kraichgauer.
Raum made a total of eleven international appearances at under-19 and under-20 levels.
After making his debut on 17 November 2020 in a 2–1 win over Wales for the under-21 team, under-21 national team coach Stefan Kuntz called up Raum for the squad for the 2021 UEFA European Under-21 Championship. He was utilised in all games, as Germany won the final 1–0 over Portugal.
