Nolan Roux excited by attacking Lille

Lille striker Nolan Roux admits that he's hoping his club form can attract the attention of France manager Laurent Blanc.

Nolan Roux has claimed that he is loving being part of an attacking team in the form of Lille this season.

The 24-year-old striker moved to the league champions in January from Brest and revealed that he has quickly settled in to life in the north of France.

Roux told Ligue1.com: "It's true that this is the most attack-minded team in Ligue 1 and, for a striker, it is great to play for a team that is always attacking.

"Things like the Champions League and our new stadium were in the back of my mind as well. That is why I decided to come here."

The former Lens forward also hinted that he hopes his form for Lille can improve his chances of a call up to Laurent Blanc's France squad.

"It is up to me to prove my worth. I still have a lot of things to prove though and right now I can't start to say that I should be playing for the national team," Roux added.

Lille are currently third in Ligue 1.
