Hameur Bouazza has revealed that he would be willing to discuss a move to Ligue 1 this summer.
A number of clubs in France are reported to be tracking the Fulham forward, with Paris St Germain and Lille believed to be leading the chase.
The Algeria international has struggled to hold down first-team football at Craven Cottage following his 2007 arrival from Watford, and he has spent spells out on loan at Charlton and Birmingham in recent years.
He admits his lack of opportunities could force him to look elsewhere during the transfer window and he has left the door open to any French clubs wishing to make a move.
"I want to play first-team football and to play in France would be fantastic. France is a country I could feel welcome in." Bouazza told skysports.com.
"My ambition, though, is to play first-team football wherever I am - either in England or in France.
"But I do want to play at the highest level, because I believe I have the quality to play at the top level."
Reports have suggested that Bouazza has been offered as a makeweight to West Brom in Fulham's pursuit of Jonathan Greening, but it remains to be seen whether the winger would be willing to step down into the Championship.
