Here are three more outstanding wingers in modern football, who today are considered by most fans of this sport to be the top full-backs in Europe.
It is impossible not to mention another Liverpool winger when we talk about Trent Alexander-Arnold. The 26-year-old Scot is an integral part of Jürgen Klopp’s team. Like his English counterpart on the opposite wing, he is also speedy and technical, who also likes to deliver assists to teammates and, following in the defender’s footsteps, is always highly productive.
He has been with Liverpool since 2017. Hull City, in exchange for the player, then received nine million. In the hands of a German specialist, Andy became one of the best left-backs in the world. His value has now risen to 64 million, according to Transfermarkt, and he has won all the titles that Alexander-Arnold has won. The creative, fast, and agile game of Andrew and Trent often helps Liverpool win.
Jürgen Klopp: “Robertson is not tall. He is only 1.78 cm tall, and I often joke that this also helps to move unobtrusively on the pitch. “From him it is impossible to escape, and this is his special talent. He also often shows a fierce character and never backs down. I like all this very much.”
The fans have become accustomed to the 25-year-old German central midfielder quite often, but they also remember well how well he can play on the defense’s right-wing. In the already finished season, where Bayern managed to win the treble, Kimmich was one of the highlights.
Joshua has been with the Munich Grand since 2015, and the value of the player bought for 8.5 million now exceeds 75 million. That says it all. Both during the midfield game and at the moment of being a full-back, Kimmich is practically infallible. And German fighting ability always sets him apart from others. In the 2019-20 season, which “Recordmeister” had a great time, Kimmich was able to win the Champions League twice. He also formed a permanent member of the team in the German national team. Real Madrid also wanted to buy the player in the past years, but the transfer was not implemented.
Thomas Müller: “When Kimmich came to Bayern, and I saw him for the first time in training, it was easy to see in his eyes that this guy was very hardworking and combative. Fortunately, he shows all this on the pitch. That is why he is one of the most reliable and stable players globally. ”
Inter Milan recently bought the 21-year-old Moroccan winger for 40 million. Real Madrid owned the player in the past, but he was on loan at Borussia Dortmund and established himself in one of the German club’s best positions.
Hakim is one of the defenders who is distinguished by his speed and sophisticated technique and was even considered one of the fastest players in the Bundesliga. At the expense of this, he gained a place among the leaders of the Borussians. It can be said that “Nerazzurri” has solved the problem of the right defender for years by adding a young player of this level. It is noteworthy that Hakim can assist the team in midfield and, in case of extreme need, also occupy the left-wing of the defense. He is a universal player, which underscores his uniqueness.
Jadon Sancho: “I like to play with players like Hakim. He can always understand his teammates’ intentions. We always managed to crown the attacks successfully with our speed and technique. “To supply you with goal assists, win battles on the second floor, and quickly return to attack defense so that you cannot even notice him tired.”
