According to stats published on FotMob, the young midfielder has a pass completion rate of 85%. His passing accuracy is considered elite which is a key component of Echeverri’s game. It is a skill of the youngsters that would appear ideally suited for life under Pep Guardiola. He also has exceptional vision with the long ball which he is currently completing at 80% accuracy. This is another trait that could see him thrive at Manchester City when he arrives next year.

His dribbling ability has also been a standout feature in Echeverri’s game. He completes 73.3% of his dribbling which is an elite completion rate, especially for a player so young. This skill of Claudio Echeverri was on full display in River Plate’s recent 2-1 Argentine Supercopa win over Estudiantes. Coming off the bench the youngster made an immediate impact and his layoff set up River Plate’s winner. His prodigious talent can be seen in the clip below.

Given his age, there is a level of inconsistency in Echeverri’s game. As he matures and with more first-team exposure at River Plate he should come to Manchester City with the potential and experience that will aid his progression into the world champions set up.

The early signs this season from Claudio Echeverri have been promising. His progress with River Plate will be something to track before he arrives at the Etihad in January next year.
