'Serie A sides want Ruffier'

The agent of Saint-Etienne goalkeeper Stephane Ruffier has admitted that his client could make a move to Serie A.

The 26-year-old has had a fantastic season for the Ligue 1 side, catching the attention of a number of top European clubs, including Fiorentina.

And his representative has conceded that a transfer to England or Italy appeals.

“Whether it is in the Premier League or Serie A, there are a lot of clubs interested in him,” Patrick Glanz told France Football.

“I'd be lying if I said otherwise.

“A lot of teams want him, but in France only Paris Saint-Germain could really get him.

“He deserves a big club.

“Stephane has big ambitions and wants to play in a team that participate in the next European Cup.

“But he could also go to a club challenging for a place in the Champions League.”
