Instalation of Sump in to 1929 home.

Basement floor concrete, Foundation is natural rock and mortor. The problem is as follows. There is no sump in the basement and after a heavy rain I get seapage from the edge of the concrete where it meets the wall. I have a french drain system all around my house that gathers all of the run off and pushes it off to the street. The water is totaly clear so it must be gound water. Question, Can I put a sump pump next to the floor drain to collect the ground water or, do I need to cut the concrete around the perimiter and lay perferated pipe to collect the water and direct it to the pump?
