Mbappe, Dembele and Lemar can rule the Premier League — and the World, says Lloris

Date Posted,June 14, 2017

Hugo Lloris believes France’s golden generation are ready to become Premier League superstars.

The Spurs and Les Bleus keeper claimed that Kylian Mbappe , Ousmane Dembele and Thomas Lemar can all be sensations in English football as well as helping France dominate world football.

Arsenal want £100million-rated teenage striker sensation Mbappe, while the Gunners and rivals Tottenham like his Monaco team-mate, midfielder Lemar.

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.”
