In a recent report, The Daily Mirror stated that Manchester City have identified Fulham full-back, Antonee Robinson, as a surprise target for this summer transfer window. It is believed that the Premier League champions are hoping to strengthen their squad ahead of the new season and could move in for the Milton Keynes-born defender in this off-season (via The Daily Mirror).
Robinson’s Solid Season At Craven Cottage
Robinson was a prominent feature in the Cottagers starting XI last season despite being relegated with them from the Premier League. The 23-year-old made 32 appearances for the London outfit in the previous campaign, picking up four yellow cards and one red card in all competitions.
The United States international did well to find some consistency in terms of his all-around contributions from the left-back position as he averaged 1.6 tackles, 1.3 interceptions, 1.9 clearances, 1.0 crosses, 1.0 key passes and 1.8 dribbles per game in the Premier League last season. However, he can improve his accuracy when distributing the ball after completing 74.9% of his attempted passes in the English top tier (stats via whoscored).
The promising left-back has shown some signs of maturity over the past 12 months and could serve as a good squad player in top-flight football. Hence, Man City should consider orchestrating a move to bring the United States sensation to the Etihad Stadium this summer.
Will Robinson Be A Good Fit For Man City This Summer?
Robinson can use his quickness and agility to pull off a few energetic sprints down the left-wing. He usually works his socks off for the benefit of his side and can whip in some inviting crosses into the opponent’s penalty area.
The 12-time United States international has proven his worth as a reliable defender at the back as he can time his tackles well to secure possession back for his side. He hardly gets beat in a 1v1 foot chase and can clear his lines when required.
Hence, Robinson will be an excellent fit for Man City as long as Pep Guardiola plans to use him as a squad player in the coming seasons. He will be an ideal second-choice option for the left-back position at the Etihad. Moreover, the United States talent will enhance the overall depth of Man City’s match-day squad that might help them cope with injuries, suspensions and fixture congestion better in the years to come.
