Former Espanyol defender Michael Ciani has revealed that he wants to play in England.
The 32-year-old Frenchman is available on a free transfer after leaving the Spanish outfit in June, but it is understood that he is currently training with former club Lorient.
Ciani, however, is desperate to make the move to English football as he seeks "a good challenge".
"I like the football in England, the mentality. I like everything," Ciani told Goal.com. "I have the physique to play there. I loved Arsenal growing up and always wanted to play in England so I think it is my time to play there.
"Thierry Henry was my favourite player in the Premier League. I was watching him in every game and he was so good at Arsenal. I have just left Espanyol and now I am looking for a good challenge, a new one. I would like to play in England so I am waiting for a proposition. The objective is to come to England but if I have a tempting offer from France, then why not?"
Ciani, who only made three league appearances for Espanyol last season, has also previously represented Bordeaux, Lazio and Sporting Lisbon.
