Cole describes the youngster as a "proper player".
"Heâ€™s very much part of our team and heâ€™s a quick learner," said Cole. "I judge people how I find them and heâ€™s a top bloke. Heâ€™s got a big future ahead of him. Heâ€™s got everything it takes, including attitude. Heâ€™s a proper player now.
"Heâ€™s been outstanding. Itâ€™s not premature to think he could play for England, look at Ross Barkley, Andros Townsend and Jack (Wilshere). I was 19 or 20 when I first played for England. Ravel must have a chance because Roy (Hodgson) has said he will go for youth over experience if itâ€™s a close call."
