Picture of the 1.86 m (6 ft 1 in) tall French centre back of Bordeaux

He is a French professional football player who is currently playing for English side Arsenal in the English Premier League. He started his professional career in France, playing for Guingamp, Tours and Lorient. In the summer of 2010 he made the move to Arsenal. Arsene Wenger, the manager at the time, stated that he needed some power and length at the back and he believed the Frenchman would provide just that. Ever since joining Arsenal he has been a regular starter and a dependable centre back. He has played over 30 games in the Premier League every season except in 2015 and 2018. He has never managed to win the Premier League Title but he did win the FA Cup 2 times with Arsenal, in 2014 and 2015. The defender has also been a regular starter for the French National Team, Les Blues. He played in several tournaments with the French squad, most notably he played at the UEFA Euro 2016 in France. In that tournament the host nation reached the finals but lost in the finals against Portugal due to a late goal of Eder. In 2018 he decided to retire from international football, a decision he probably regrets, given the fact that the French managed to win the World Cup Title at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia. In the summer of 2019 he made the move to Bordeaux. Cool stuff.
