The Frenchman looks an ideal addition to the Reds’ back-line in the summer, with reinforcements clearly required.
At 22, he represents both the present and the future, while his average of 2.8 aerial duels won in the Champions League this season shows he is suited to the dominant player in the air Liverpool are thought to be looking at.
