Anfield club want Stade Auguste Bonal star.
Sochaux midfielder Ryad Boudebouz has revealed he is in discussions with Liverpool over a proposed £7million move.
The 21-year-old only has two years left on his current contract and seems extremely excited about a proposed move to Anfield.
The Algeria international bagged eight goals and eight assists from 37 Ligue 1 appearances as his side just missed out on European qualification.
Boudebouz insists the move will not be finalised until next week but is interested in hearing what deal Liverpool will offer.
“The Liverpool interest is solid,” he told L’Est Republicain. “There has been contact but we have to take our time, meet the chairman and remain calm.
“I want to sit down and discuss things when we return for pre-season training. If there is an important offer, we will not be able to turn it down.
“I don’t wish to leave Sochaux but if there is an offer on the table, I will think about it.”
Liverpool are also closing in on deals for Aston Villa winger Stewart Downing and Blackpool captain Charlie Adam.
A £26million double swoop will likely be finalised by the end of the week.
