David and Victoria Beckham are reportedly house-hunting in France.

The 36-year-old soccer star – who is believed to want to finish his playing career with Paris St. Germain – is said to have hired a US real estate agency to find a "triplex apartment in a beautiful building" that he, his wife and their four children can use as a base in the city.

According to local reports in France, Victoria wants to buy somewhere in the prestigious sixth arrondissement on the historic Rive Gauche, which is best known for the Sorbonne University and its bookshops and libraries, and has previously seen literary legends Oscar Wilde, Samuel Beckett, F. Scott Fitzgerald and James Joyce reside there.

However, Victoria, 37, is more interested in the areas fashion shops.

Josephine Leclerc, who runs a boutique in the sixth arrondissement, said: "Victoria often comes to Paris for fashion events, and would just love to be here full time. David and Victoria will set the place abuzz – we would absolutely love to have them here.’

The couple – who have three sons, Brooklyn, 12, Romeo, nine, and six-year-old Cruz, as well as three-month-old daughter Harper - already own a holiday home in the South of France, as well as properties in England and the US.
