The former AC Milan forward has now explained why he looks up to Ronaldo de Lima and Cristiano Ronaldo as his football idols.

"I often watch Ronaldo, the Brazilian one. My favourite player? I also look at Cristiano and former strikers like Hernán Crespo, and watch videos of players I admired like Thierry Henry, Jean-Pierre Papin and Sonny Anderson. There was also François Calderaro at Toulouse; I was a big fan of his style".

The 26-year-old also owes a lot of his success to former Dortmund and current Liverpool manager, Jurgen Klopp.

"Klopp brought me a lot. He gave me strength of character and made me develop defensively. The two years I spent with him were very useful to help me step up a level," he added. 

"He's someone charismatic and I have a lot of respect for him. He's one of the three coaches who gave me the chance to become who I am today along with [Saint-Étienne's] Christophe Galtier and [current Dortmund boss] Thomas Tuchel."
