Anyone know anything of this guy? Just curious. A youtube available?
Have seen only 2 truncated games and one highlight video, so take this with a grain of salt, but he seems defensively compact, decent when pressed and a competent distributor of the ball for his age. Verona's defense was in good form for a couple of months (not so much recently) and they have conceded the 5th fewest goals in Serie A — so Kumbulla, and their other highly rated centerback, Amir Rrahmani, are being linked with bigger clubs. Anyway, he is close to signing for Internazionale according to Di Marzio and Romano, with Federico Dimarco going the other way, so this could be a non-starter (probably a case of the player's representative or Verona's management creating a market for the player). Marotta/Conte presumably want to develop a young central defensive core with players like Bastoni and Pirola behind De Vrij and Škriniar (Godín/Ranocchia are unlikely to be part of the long term plans), and Kumbulla would be a signing in that direction as he is already experienced in a back-3.

This is probably the best individual highlight video you'll find on Youtube...
