Sheffield United loan star Arturo Lupoli has told skysports.com he would be happy to return to England on a permanent basis.
Lupoli is currently on loan at Bramall Lane until the end of the season from Fiorentina after enjoying a loan spell at Norwich before making the move to Sheffield United in the January transfer window.
The Italian forward has impressed at the Blades and he is keen to try and help the club win promotion back to the Premier League.
Lupoli is due to return to Fiorentina at the end of the season, but the former Arsenal starlet admits he would be keen on extending his stay in England.
Lupoli told skysports.com: "I've loved my time at Sheffield and it was great to start off for the side in the big game against Sheffield Wednesday. It was even better to score!
"I'm hoping to continue my career in England. The football is great here and I love the place.
"I would be happy to stay at Sheffield United or another club in England if they can reach an agreement with Fiorentina.
"I could stay at Fiorentina as I am under contract there, but I am keen to be playing regularly and if I can't get that at Fiorentina I will look elsewhere.
"I would love to play in the Premier League as every player wants to play in the best league in the world.
"Hopefully I can help Sheffield United reach the Premier League and then play there with them.
"It all depends on Fiorentina and we will wait and see what happens in the summer."
