General Comments:

First of all, this is my first profile on a defender, so you all need to understand that the profile length isn't ever going to be of a substantial length and have as much content in it. It is also more difficult to evaluate a defender but I will try my best to oblige. I feel that Hummels is a very, very good centre-back (as do many people), but I think that people underestimate a certain quality of his. Passing. Hummels has a fantastic range of passes that can set up any offensive player, as he knows just how to play it with the right pace, loft and weight. It's superb. I have seen him countless times set up the likes of Goetze down the wing and start off attacks, and counter-attacks. On the defensive side of it though, I feel he is a very confident player who really doesn't care who he's against, he'll do his best to stop ANYONE from getting any where near his goal, even if it means making a risky challenge from the side when the attackers one-on-one with the keeper. It's great. I don't see how you can't love a defender that takes these risks, as it makes them much, much better than the ones that don't. I also feel that he has a great reading of the game, as he puts in block after block in every game he plays as he is able to out-think the attacker and stop the move in its track. Every game it is clear that he puts in 110% and I think Bayern were fools to let him go. I can honestly see why he has attracted so much attention, as I do agree that he's the best defender in the Bundesliga, and could potentially be one of the best in Europe due to his consistency and age. I think any team that is lucky enough to challenge for his signature should go all-out in order to persuade him for his signature, as he'd be a great addition to ANY European side. To close this comment, whether it's relevant or not, Hummels would certainly cut it in the Premier League, but I could not see him in a particular side apart from Arsenal if i'm honest, as at the minute they are extremely frail at the back and need a player of his calibur. However, as I said, he would be a great addition to any top European side. What are your thoughts on the first Player Profile on a defender?

The Business End of the Profile:

Mats Hummels is a top class central defender, however it would take a massive bid to prize him away from Dortmund and even then he may reject them. As of yet Hummels has not been the subject of any bid however if he were to become available all the big clubs in Europe would be clawing to get his signature.
