European giants vying for Sofiane Boufal

Le 10 Sport is reporting that a number of top European clubs are showing interest in Lille winger Sofiane Boufal.

Premier League high-flyers Tottenham Hotspur appear to be leading the chase at the moment and their scouts have been regular at Ligue 1 games this season.

Boufal, who has been compared to Chelsea’s Eden Hazard for his style of play, has been the only bright spot in an otherwise disappointing start to the season for les Dogues.

The Moroccan has scored 4 goals in 12 Ligue 1 fixtures this term and he has caught the eye of quite a few top clubs in the process.

According to Le 10 Sport, AC Milan, Inter Milan, Valencia, Lyon and Marseille are also showing interest in the 22-year-old footballer.

Sofiane Boufal had come through the youth ranks at Angers and he only joined Lille in January this year, arriving in a €3 million deal.
