Wesley Fofana can “become one of the best centre-backs in the world”, says his Leicester City teammate Jonny Evans.
French defender Fofana has made a great start to life at the King Power Stadium, following his move from Saint-Etienne in October.
And Evans told BBC Radio 5 Live: “He can probably go on and become one of the best centre-backs in the world.
“Sometimes you forget how young he is. He’s got a real athleticism and maturity about him.
“You can tell he’s going to be a top-class player.
“He’s got all the attributes: comfortable on the ball, aggressive in his defending.
“He’s confident and seems sure of himself and I think when you see the games that he has come in, he’s played with a real maturity.
“I don’t think he’s going to be one to hide from certain situations, he’ll take every challenge on. It looks like he really enjoys that challenge and you can see that by his aggression on the pitch.”
