Speaking on The Blue Room podcast, the French journalist said: "He's an incredible talent, there is no doubt.

"Whether he is a big success straight away or whether you have to wait a little bit - I don't know. But he's got all the qualities to succeed in England.

"I think English football suits him perfectly and he suits English football perfectly in the sense that he's good on the ball, he's strong, he's intelligent, he's powerful - he's a [Aurelien] Tchouameni, he's a Paul Pogba bracket of player."
