Didier Digard has admitted he would welcome the chance to move to England after Middlesbrough made a bid for his services.
Boro are locked in talks with Paris Saint Germain about the midfielder, who has already been to travelled to Teesside this week.
PSG want around 6million euros (£4.7million) for the player, while Boro are believed to have only put a bid together of 5million euros (£3.9million) - although French reports claim discussions are ongoing.
The player himself has confirmed he would be open to the idea of a move to the Premier League club.
"There are discussions between the two clubs," he told Maxifoot.
"I do not know yet if they will succeed, but I am not against moving to England.
"In Paris I had a difficult season, I was either not played in my position or I was on the bench.
"They do not seem to count on me for next season."
Boro boss Gareth Southgate has already confirmed his desire to land the 21-year-old.
