Kudus, Messi and Vinicius Jr among top 5 dribblers in Europe


Along with Lionel Messi and Vinicius Jr., Mohammed Kudus, a player for Ghana, is among the top five dribblers in the top seven leagues in Europe.

With 91 take-ons in the recently concluded 2022–23 season, Squawka statistics rank the Ajax player as the fourth best dribbler in Europe.

With 112 takedowns executed successfully over the course of the season, Vinicius Jr. of Real Madrid is #1 on the list.

Messi is in second overall with 102 takeaways, and Jeremy Doku of Rennes is third with 96 takeaways.

Kudus rounds out the top four European dribblers, followed by Lee Kang-In, Samuel Chukwueze, and Jude Bellingham, who take fifth, sixth, and seventh place, respectively.

The top three European dribblers are Ludovic Blas, Nico Williams of Athletic Bilbao, and Jeremie Frimpong of Bayern Leverkusen.

Only two players completed 100+ take-ons in Europe’s top seven leagues during the 2022/23 season:

 Kudus is now in training with Ghana’s national squad as they get ready to play Madagascar in an AFCON qualifier in 2023.

The 22-year-old scored 18 goals and provided five assists across all club competitions last season, which was his most productive season in front of goal.

Despite the Black Stars’ elimination in the group stage of the Qatar 2022 World Cup, he also scored twice and gave one assist for Ghana.

Last summer, the talented playmaker came very close to joining Everton of the Premier League, but Ajax prevented the transfer.

However, because he declined to sign a new deal with the Dutch super team, he is still the focus of transfer controversies.
