Southampton’s Moroccan midfielder Sofiane Boufal has revealed that he would have considered a move to French giants Olympique Marseille if they had tried to sign him.
The Atlas Lions attacking midfielder was linked with a move to OM in the European summer.
The 24-year-old admits the idea of a transfer to the Ligue 1 heavyweights intrigues him and he would have seriously considered it - if Marseille had made a concrete offer to the Saints.
He told Canal+: "OM? Yes they turned me around. They never came to see me. Marseille, it's still a great French club. They are the best supporters of France.
"It might have interested me, but I'm in Southampton."
Boufal will look to keep his form and fitness for the Saints ahead of next year’s World Cup finals in Russia.
