The gifted attacker only joined l'OM last summer from Paris Saint Germain but he has struggled to establish himself at Stade Velodrome.
He has barely figured under new coach Philippe Troussier and concedes he could be tempted by a move across The Channel during the transfer window.
"I don't ask to leave," Fiorese told L'Equipe.
"Now, considering the present situation, if there is a good opportunity and everyone takes advantage from a move, why not?
"England could also be a possibility. I love challenges and that would be one."
The 29-year-old has made just one appearance for Marseille since Troussier took over the reins from Jose Anigo.
In midweek, he was not even on the substitutes' bench for the game with Lille and Fiorese admits he is finding it tough on the South Coast.
He added: "I am frustrated and disappointed by the choice made by the coach on Tuesday as I was not in the group at Lille.
"It is a bad blow but I am a professional so I accept it but it is difficult.
"My adaptation is not easy. Unfortunately I came in a difficult period. I came when Jose Anigo was coach and a few weeks later he resigned.
"But I am responsible and I want to say I need time. Anyway, I remain concentrated on my performances and so far they were not equal to what I expected."
