Former Espanyol defender Micheal Ciani has declared his love for Arsenal.
The 32-year-old centre-back has revealed Arsenal are the club of his heart and a move to the Emirates will be difficult to turn down.
Ciani is the second French player to have declared his love for Arsenal this summer after Tottenham midfielder Moussa Sissoko.
“I like the football in England, the mentality. I like everything,” Ciani told Goal.
“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.”
Ciani is without a club after leaving Expanyol in August following a disagreement with the Spanish club, however a move to the Emirates is very unlikely.
It is not surprising Arsenal are popular in France, a large number of French players have played for the club since Arsene Wenger became manager in 1996.
