Ba has not started a game since December and has grown increasingly disillusioned with life on the sidelines.
He told RMC: "My agent has spoken to the club about a departure and he has started speaking with other clubs about a contract for next season.
"I hope we can find the best option possible. I'd like to stay in England. I like other leagues, too. I'd like to try the Italian league.
"Nothing's been confirmed but there are a few teams in Italy who play very good football."
