Hugo Lloris believes France’s golden generation are ready to become Premier League superstars.
They would follow in a long line of French players who have enjoyed massive success in English football from Thierry Henry and Patrick Vieira through to N’Golo Kante and Paul Pogba’s record-breaking £89m move to Manchester United a year ago.
France captain Lloris said: “The Premier League is very exciting. All the Premier League clubs have the capacity and the ability to bring the best players in the world.
“In France, we used to have a lot of talented players and it’s true that the new generation are fantastic, but we need to give them time to get the right maturity.
“But as they showed against England, they are ready to compete at the best level. Let’s see what will happen in the Premier League.
“We have a lot of players who are very unpredictable, because in one versus one they can make the difference, they have the pace and that’s one skill for our national team.”
