Auxerre defender Willy Boly will consider his options at the end of the season.
The 22 year-old has attracted interest from Sunderland.
"I am flattered by all of the talk, but I will wait until the end of the season to see where I will be," he said. "Sunderland? That would be fantastic. I have dreamt about the English league since the start of my career.
"I have also been linked with clubs in Italy, so maybe that is why I am also linked with (Paolo) Di Canio."
