Midfield ace Ryad Boudebouz has revealed that he is likely to stay at Sochaux next season, despite reported interest from Liverpool.
The Algerian international has ended speculation about a potential move to Anfield by expressing his desire to stay at the Stade Auguste Bonal for another year.
The Reds' director of football Damien Comolli had reportedly attempted to sign Boudebouz in the January transfer window before being knocked back.
The Premier League club do not seem to be deterred by Boudebouz's recent comments and are reportedly ready to step up their attempts with a £5million offer for his services.
The youngster bagged eight goals for the Ligue 1 outfit last season to help them clinch a Europa League place.
And, while talking to the French media, the 21-year-old said: "I would want to stay here for a further year.
"It is for the president to decide. It is true when I say that I'm with Sochaux 100% but we know that things happen fast in football so all I'm going to say for now is that I'm not looking to leave."
