PARIS SAINT GERMAIN striker Kaba Diawara is unaware of Charlton Athletic's alleged interest in his services but would be tempted by a return to Nice.
Diawara spent last season on the South Coast of France, and bagged 12 goals in 37 appearances for Nice.
The 27-year-old is back in training with PSG as he awaits a decision regarding his future, as several clubs are keen to entice him away from Parc des Princes.
For now, the former Arsenal and West Ham man is knuckling down to keeping himself in shape during pre-season in case he leaves PSG during the summer.
But while he recently admitted he was keen to try his luck again in England, he has not been contacted by The Addicks.
"What offer?" replied Diawara when quizzed on the Charlton rumours. "I am not aware of it."
Diawara did add that he would be happy to head back to Provence as several clubs vie for his signature.
"I know that there have been discussions with Nice and other clubs," continued Diawara. "For the moment, I am in Paris.
"It is necessary to get myself ready. Last year, I did the training with PSG before leaving for Nice.
"If I remain here, I will give my all. If I must leave, at least I will have done the training.
"As for Nice, it would be great to go there. I was satisfied with my season. And what's more, there is the sun and my family."
