Born in Amsterdam, the young winger had an interesting youth journey, stopping off at Ajax before travelling to England to join Manchester City’s academy. In fact, until last year, he was still a City player; however, a demand for first team football meant that he was eager to move on. Hertha Berlin offered him this.
Six Bundesliga games. Three goals and two assists, not bad for the Dutchman. Left footed and with a remarkable close control, it was not long before he was likened to Lionel Messi. Who isn’t these days?
What could present a risk to Chelsea is his lack of contribution to general play. In a league where it’s so easy to get lost out on the pitch, Dilrosun seems to possess a trait of fading away from the game. Averaging only 15 passes per game and one dribble (WhoScored) is not enough for someone of his talent. It perhaps lends to the fact that Berlin are not a possession-hungry side.
Chelsea would be a different kettle of fish and this is perhaps why the move could present a risk. Usually challenging low-blocks, Javairô Dilrosun would have a different responsibility to what he does now;he would have to develop not only composure infront of goal but patience to wait for an opening. He is Javairô Dilrosun, and he is a talent for the future. Premier League right now?
