With the teenager set for his international debut, Lloris said the way Mbappe had dealt with the attention had been impressive.

"He is being talked about everywhere, even in England," the Tottenham goalkeeper said.

"His performances made a lot of noise, but I find him quite detached and serene in relation to all of that.

"He shows great maturity at his young age. It is true that what he does in Monaco is quite impressive. It's a good sign for the future.

"If he continues to work and get involved for the team, he has all the qualities to make a great career."

Such have been his displays, Mbappe has been linked with the likes of Manchester United, Real Madrid and Chelsea.
