According to L’Equipe, Belgian national coach Marc Wilmots has spoken with Marseille central midfielder Giannelli Imbula about playing for Belgium as his international allegiance of choice.
The Belgian-born Frenchman is understood to have rejected the opportunity for now, but, speaking to La Dernière Heure:
“I have watched their matches a little bit at the World Cup. I know this team sufficiently and I am open to Les Diables.”
The player has of course been a crucial individual in the France U21s setup in the past two years.
