Arles Avignon star being tracked by Premiership side

Centre-half Soro is seen as the perfect addition to Roberto Di Matteo’s side after their promotion to the Premier League and Soro would welcome a chance to play in England.

“I would love to one day come to the Premier League,” he told

“I was in England with Charlton but couldn’t play in the league because I could not get a work permit.

“I have since helped Avignon to the top league in France and have done well.

“Unfortunately I could not go to the World Cup, but I am confident of forcing my way into the side for the African Cup of Nations in 2012.”
