With six goals and five assists at club level already this season, there's a belief that the former PSG man is about to have a monster campaign in Scottish football.

Turning in excellent international displays with France, even at youth level, could take his reputation to new heights over the next few months.

That will likely result in increased transfer interest but, as ever, Celtic are in a strong position contractually. The Frenchman is signed up to Celtic Park until 2022.
