Ghana defender Abdul Rahman Baba has rejected a move to France, reports La Provence.
The 2019 Africa Cup of Nations star has offers from several Ligue 1 outfits including giants Olympique Marseille.
But the Chelsea-owned left-back wants a return to Germany or a move to Italy.
Last season, Baba spent the second half of the campaign on-loan at Stade Reims and was impressive.
He made 11 Ligue 1 appearances and scored one goal.
