Southampton midfielder Boufal happy with Marseille rumours

Ligue 1 clubs are queuing to sign Southampton midfielder Sofiane Boufal.

Boufal will leave Saints this summer after a bust-up with manager Mark Hughes towards the end of last season.

L'Eqiupe says Olympique Marseille are keen, along with Rennes and Bordeaux. Rennes see Boufal as a replacement for Wahbi Khazri, who was on-loan last season from Sunderland.

Meanwhile, Boufal said of OM's interest: "OM? It's still a very big club, they reached the final of the Europa League and there's excitement around the club ... Of course OM interests me ... why not sign there?"
