Super Eagles forward, Samuel Chukwueze has been ranked as the 51st-best attacking player in take-ons in 2022 according to a CIES Football Observatory report.
Chukwueze has not racked up goals and assists since his breakout season in 2018. However, an important and unique aspect of his game is his dribbling skills.
The 23-year-old Super Eagles star is currently one of the best dribblers in Laliga. He averages 1.5 dribbles per game. And since coach Quique Setien took over at Villarreal in October last year, Chukwueze has flourished.
In the latest report by the International Centre for Sports Studies (CIES), Chukwueze was ranked as the 51st-best player in take ons.
Chukwueze ranks higher than Manchester United midfielder Bruno Fernandes, and Chelsea stars Raheem Sterling and Mason Mount. He also sits above big names like Federico Valverde, Frenkie de Jong, Ferran Torres, Jack Grealish, and Yannick Carrasco.
Meanwhile, Ousmane Dembele, Vinicius Junior, Kevin de Bruyne, Filip Kostic, Rafael Leao, Kingsley Coman, Kylian Mbappe, Sebastian Villa, Cody Gakpo, and Phil Foden make up the top ten.
