I think he's up there as one of the best one on one defenders playing right now, he's so clean at winning the ball from the opposition dribblers. Don't want to go over the top but I get Vidic vibes from watching him. Also drives forward with the ball as a CB, pretty good passer too.Is Škriniar that good? I have not seen much of him, in fact all I've seen of him is that scoutnation video and he looked really clumsy, not really agile.
I don't know how good he's on the ball but in that video he looked a bit panicky on the ball.
His defending seemed mostly dependent on his physicality rather than reading of the game but again that's the impression I got from a 10 minute video and I could be wrong .
I'm just of the opinion that if we're going to go for a CB it has to him or we shouldn't bother because the quality after Škriniar and possibly Varane is nowhere near worth investing in to replace what we've already got. Unless some how we figure a way to sign Vertonghen.
