Boudebouz claims Reds interest
Algeria international Ryad Boudebouz has claimed Liverpool are eager to sign him.
Boudebouz, 21, has been with Sochaux since 2004 and is under contract until 2013, but the playmaker has revealed he would be open to a move to Anfield.
"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."
"I like Kenny's playing style and I think it suits Liverpool," he told the club's official website. "It suits the football club and it suits the fans. I was really happy he and Steve Clarke signed their deals.
"Steve has made a big, big impact and he is really good. I can't say enough good things about him. Kenny suits this club. He knows everything about it, and the fans know him. It's positive for the future."
He added: "It is a different way of playing football. The training sessions are enjoyable. People talk about confidence and it is such a big thing in football because it can change from one day to another.
"The main change is about being positive. Playing positive football and that's the biggest difference."
