Loic Remy has set his heart on a move to England and has shrugged off interest from within France.
The Nice frontman has been heavily linked with a switch to the Premier League this summer, with West Ham and Liverpool reported to be leading the chase.
The France international has made it clear that he would relish the opportunity to test himself in England and has expressed a desire to move on.
He has, however, been left frustrated by a lack of activity which sees him still on the books of Nice.
The reluctance of the English clubs to make their move has alerted others to the possibility of snatching Remy from under their noses.
Lyon and Rennes are both said to be keen to keep the 23-year-old in his homeland, but Remy has reiterated that he will only consider a deal with a Premier League side.
"I am prepared to resume the season with Nice, even if I had hoped to be at a new club by now," he said in L'Equipe.
"I have made my preference clear and I still favour England."
Meanwhile, Nice's general manager Patrick Governatori has revealed that the club have made a second approach for Middlesbrough midfielder Didier Digard.
The Ligue 1 outfit have already seen one approach knocked back by Gordon Strachan's side, but remain optimistic regarding their chances of landing the 24-year-old.
"Our first offer has been refused, but we have just sent a new one," said Governatori.
