Diomansy Kamara may be set to reject a permanent transfer to Celtic in favour of a move to boyhood club Paris St Germain.
The Senegalese striker, who moved to Parkhead on a six-month loan from Fulham in January, is wanted by the Hoops, however, they are struggling to afford the £2.5million buyout clause in his contract.
Bordeaux and PSG are rumoured to be waiting in the wings and willing to pay the Cottagers' asking price for the 29-year-old, although he is set to talk to Fulham about lowering their asking price.
Despite being born in the French capital, Kamara has never played in the French top division, moving away from his Parisian roots at Red Star 93 to Italy and England.
"PSG would be a dream for me. When you start football you always have dreams," said Kamara.
"One of mine was to play for Senegal and I have done that for almost ten years now, another would be PSG.
"It's close to my heart and to go from being in the stands to the pitch, with my family watching, would be a nice feeling.
"I'm 29 and I haven't yet played in Ligue 1 so it would nice to experience that."
Kamara was quick to pay tribute to both Celtic and Fulham, stating that he has enjoyed his time playing in Scotland, as well as stressing his good relations with Fulham boss Roy Hodgson and the board.
"I have just spent six months at Celtic, a huge club. Everything went well; I played a dozen games and scored four goals," he said.
"But I am still under contract at Fulham and I am going to take my time to decide where I go next.
"I still have good relations with the club but they are asking for three or four million Euros to sell me and for a player with one year left on his contract it's too high."
