Dijon’s Senegalese defender Papy Djilobodji has praised Olympique Lyon’s attackers, including former Chelsea teammate and Burkina Faso star Bertrand Traore.

Djilobodji, who is on loan from Sunderland, believes Lyon pose a huge attacking threat and isn’t surprised the success Traore has enjoyed since his permanent move to the former Ligue 1 champions.

He said: "Everyone can score. What is impressive is the variety of their profiles. There is Mariano Diaz, you feel that as soon as he has the ball he will not let go, he really wants to score.

"(Memphis) Depay is a high class player, he can make exceptional gestures, unexpected. (Nabil) Fekir, it's impossible to take a ball from him.

"And Bertrand (Traore), whom I knew in Chelsea, technically he is very, very good: with his feints, he is very hard to stop."

Djilobodji helped Dijon record a 3-1 home win over Troyes in Ligue 1 this past weekend.
