General Comments : -

I have seen alot of ogbonna over the last 2-3 years and one thing you can say about him is he is very consistent however he does lack pace on numerous occasions players who are not really that fast just cruise past him this would be a problem if he moved to the premier league against people like walcott and lennon i think he would struggle. also for a centre half he is not the biggest but he does have very good heading ability. one thing that strikes you when you watch ogbonna his positioning is excellent he very much reminds you of maldini as he is always in the wright place at the wright time at the minute i dont know of any premier league teams who are interested as he looks destined to stay in italy with juve, roma and ac all interested a move to ac does look the most likely at the minute as for whether he would cut it in England i doubt it he just doesnt have enough pace and would get caught out and awful lot.

Summary: -

- strengths - heading, decison making, positioning and stamina

- weaknesses - size, pace,and strength as he gets muscled of the ball a lot
