“I literally love it here. It’s a family Club which I like, I was looking for that, so I literally love it. The coaches are great, everybody’s welcomed me with open arms, so I’m feeling great in the team and the Club which is brilliant. For me, it’s perfect.”

The young Frenchman has just been called up to represent his nation’s under-20 team – the first time that has happened for three years!

The 19-year-old is a hugely exciting prospect. His talent may well have gone to waste had he stayed with Chelsea without getting a look-in for their senior team.
