Southampton and Morocco winger Sofiane Boufal has talked up a return to Ligue 1, saying he would be keen to play for Olympique Marseille.


Boufal has struggled to impress at the Saints since his move from Lille in August 2016 and is now hoping he can revive his career in the French top flight.


"It's true that today a return to France interests me a great deal," Boufal told SFR Sport.


"A good club in France that plays in Europe, of course, I would be very very interested in returning.


"It's a league I know, a language I know... so it's true, a return to France.


"L'Olympique de Marseille remain a very big club. This year they've made it to the final of the Europa League... of course, L'OM interests me, if they are interested, why not sign for them?"
