Stats Scouting: Oleksandr Zinchenko
Taking a look at the newest transfer target for Arsenal
The links for Arsenal and Oleksandr Zinchenko are growing stronger by the day, this looks like a deal that will happen. I think I said something similar about Raphinha but in the end, his heart was always set on Barcelona and Arsenal couldn't overcome that pull. With Zincheko there doesn't seem to be that same dream team stalking the deal, so I feel pretty hopeful that this one won't get hijacked.
So let's start with a bit of pie in the sky wow this guy is awesome-type content to get things rolling.
Yeah that is Zinchenko coming in as one the best statistical fullbacks. Last season he ranked fifth among fullback in the Premier League on my rating system.
Yeah, that's him with the best passing score of any fullback. It is mouthwatering to think what he could do in the Arsenal system with these kinds of stats.
I did have to lower the minute cut-off to 1,000 minutes from the standard 1,500 to get him included in the list but that is something that we will talk about in more depth a bit later.
Overall his stats really pop as a player.
So now that I have gone into the high-level goodness of what makes him so exciting let's dig in a little more detail about the player.
