He has been selected for the provisional squad - and a potential battle with Tomas Repka - but that will be trimmed down, and Fredi is hoping he survives the cut.
"They haven't given the final list yet so we will see in a few days," he says, "but it is good they are thinking about me.
"This happened before, but I got injured so I am happy they didn't forget me now I am back.
"It has been a long wait, the two or three years since I have been here, and I tried to give my best.
"But getting picked, if I do, will be a relief.
"I can only improve if I am selected because France have such good players."
As for whether he is back to full fitness yet, he admits: "I can't say. I do feel good but the time to judge will be when I have played a complete game.
"But hopefully I won't have any more problems."
With Fredi almost sure to start at Leeds, his biggest test following his injury sustained at Chelsea in September is, therefore, still to come.
