France coach Deschamps impressed by Juventus youngster Pogba

France boss Didier Deschamps is watching Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba.

Pogba has made a big impact for Juve since his arrival from Manchester United.

"Paul will be a phenomenon when he's been playing at these levels for three or four seasons," former Juve boss Deschamps told Tuttosport.

"However, there is no doubt that he has interesting potential. He has the characteristics and the right head to flourish. You don't play in so many games for Juventus by chance.

"I speak to Juventus boss Antonio Conte regularly. We're friends," the ex-midfielder continued. "I'm calm because Paul is in the right hands.

"Paul's time will come with the national team. His future just depends on him. He's already on my preliminary list for the games against Georgia and Spain. You'll have to see if he makes the final squad."
