The 23-year-old who makes his return against Manchester United in April and has been involved in just seven games this season.
But the four-time France international insists he would be at “full power” for the 2018 World Cup Russia, if he is picked.

“Physically and mentally, I’m at full power and I’m ready to go to Russia.”
