Rudi Garcia plans to sign some 'big players' after taking over as the new boss of Roma and he could raid former club Lille.
Roma failed to qualify for Europe last season after finishing sixth in Serie A and they also lost the Coppa Italia final to arch-rivals Lazio to mean there is a need to overhaul their squad.
And ex-Lille manager Garcia wants to attract some star names, possibly from Ligue 1, as he seeks to return his new club to a powerful force in Europe.
"There are a lot of players that could attract me at Lille but also in France," he told media in a press conference.
"Roma sporting director Walter Sabatini knows the Italian market well. I know the French market. We will use our abilities to hire big players."
