Ryad Boudebouz admits he wouldn't be able to turn down a 'compelling opportunity' after being questioned over the interest of Liverpool.

Reds director of football Damien Comolli has made personal trips to watch the Sochaux starlet on a number of occasions, most recently over the weekend in a 2-1 win over Lyon.

And, when questioned by France Football regarding the interest of Liverpool, Boudebouz admitted that he was well aware that he was being tracked.

"I was told that he had spoken to the president of Sochaux, but I don’t know what they said. We’ll see," responded the 21-year-old.

"I cannot say I feel like leaving, that would be a lie. For now, there is no proposal, but if there was a compelling opportunity, I could not refuse.

"But, I am at Sochaux at the moment and I am very much with Sochaux."

Contracted with the Ligue 1 side until 2013, the Algerian international was first linked with a move to Liverpool in the summer transfer window.

Comolli is a huge admirer of the eight-cap international, and is believed to have passed on several glowing references to Liverpool boss Kenny Dalglish in an effort to persuade the Scot to bring the player to Anfield.

It's unclear how much Liverpool would have to pay to secure the signing of Boudebouz, but with fitness concerns over captain Steven Gerrard and summer signing Jordan Henderson yet to hit the heights on Merseyside, landing one of the top young talents plying his trade in Europe would represent great business for the Reds.
