Central defender Sammy Traore has revealed he wants to test himself in the Premier League after spending his whole career in France.
The 32-year-old Paris Saint Germain player would relish a move across the channel this summer if a top flight club comes knocking.
He believes the league is unique and is particularly attracted to the physical side of the English game.
The player, who spent last season on loan at Auxerre, told French newspaper Le Parisien: "I want to play in England. And in the top flight.
"That destination attracts me. The atmosphere there is unique. Truly, I see myself going and trying my luck there.
"In England there are plenty of scraps to get involved in and I really like physical battles. And I can get by in English."
But he refused to comment on whether he had received any offers from English top flight clubs, saying: "Seeing as nothing is signed, there's nothing to comment on."
