His interceptions are indeed on point, but his tackling are also on point, he rarely misses a tackle, he's so intelligent with the way he tackles and goes into duels.
He's reminding me of Thiago Alcantara when it comes to defensive awareness, Thiago raised up his defensive play a lot and became a really reliable defensive midfielder in past 2-3 seasons, Frenkie already looks like he's at that stage that he can play as sole defensive mid and do fantastic job both ways.
Not gonna lie, I didn't watch every Ajax game in Eredivisie, but I've seen 5-10 of them and pretty much all those vs compilations of Frenkie and I don't think i'm overreacting if I say he's already top 5 midfielder in the world.
One thing he is really amazing at is threading forward passes through middle, he hides them in similar way Busquets does, body positioning to one side and looking at that side as well and then he pulls an awesome pass.
Obviously his SPA and SPS are getting better and better.
