Ciani keen on Premiership move

The 25-year-old has been linked with several clubs, including Bordeaux and PSG.

“If I have to stay in France, it would only be for such big clubs, otherwise I would prefer to go abroad,” he told Aujourd’hui Sport.

“I heard about interest from Paris. It is a very good trail for me. I am happy to see big clubs are attracted.

“I know coach Antoine Kombouare (new PSG manager) has appreciated me as he already wanted to sign me when he was at Valenciennes.

“There are clubs interested so I will surely leave Lorient this summer.”
