French defender Aymeric Laporte is aiming to earn a maiden call-up to the France national side following his Premier League switch. The 23-year-old arrived at Manchester City on a record deal from Athletic Bilbao earlier in January, and he is hoping that the success around the club can enhance his chances of being recognised by Didier Deschamps.
He said: “Of course the more games you win, the more trophies you win, you have more chance of getting into the national side.I have to focus on my club for now, and if things go well, we'll see about that later. I've been very warmly welcomed by the club. The players are very happy to have me, I'm happy to be with them. The club has helped me in every aspect, and that's very good for me. So things are going well on and off the pitch, and we're getting results too, so it's great."
