Auxerre striker Luigi Pieroni admits he would welcome a move to Ligue 1 rivals Bordeaux.
Pieroni is expected to leave Auxerre during the January transfer window after failing to hold down a first-team place.
Nantes were credited with an interest, while Bordeaux have also been linked and the forward is excited by a potential move to Ricardo's side.
"I have heard about the rumours," Pieroni told But!
"Les Girondins are very ambitious and I am very attracted by them.
"But nothing is done, so we will see at the right moment."
Meanwhile, Bordeaux coach Ricardo confirmed his intention to strengthen his squad in the New Year.
Ricardo told Sud-Ouest: "I have been thinking of the winter market since 21st August.
"We need more leaders on the field, even more in defence and in the midfield - that is less crucial for the striker."
