Although Kiwior might not have an immediate impact on the team due to the excellent performances of Gabriel and William Saliba this season, his versatility could make him a useful squad option.
At the age of 22, Kiwior is yet to reach his prime so it shouldn’t be a worry if he doesn’t immediately break into the starting eleven.
Kiwior is also a left-footed centre-back, so is an ideal candidate to provide competition with Gabriel in this role, with Rob Holding and Ben White more suited to the right-hand side.
