Sky Sports understands former Crawley Town captain Pablo Mills could be set for a move to France with Boulogne FC.
Boulogne have invited Mills over talks and to look around the club as they look to land the former Derby County man.
Mills is available on a free transfer after leaving Crawley at the end of last season.
Boulogne who were relegated from Ligue 2 last season and are keen to go straight back up and see Mills as a key addition to their plans of winning promotion back to the second tier of French football at the first attempt.
A host of clubs are thought to have expressed an interest in signing Mills with the defender having several offers on the table, but he is weighing up all his options.
Mills is thought to have come to the attention of Boulogne and several other overseas clubs after his man of the match performance against Manchester United in the FA Cup just over a year ago.
Mills' agent, Gino Culbertson, has confirmed the 28-year-old is interested in the possibility of moving to France.
"Boulogne FC have expressed an interest in signing Pablo," Culbertson told skysports.com.
"Pablo will go to France on Wednesday for a number of days to train with the club, look at their facilities and further assess the whole opportunity, but it is an exciting option for Pablo."
