Toon interest in Algerian midfielder.
Another Barton replacement?
Newcastle United seem to be speculating in France in terms of transfer targets with the latest one allegedly being Ryad Boudebouz.

The latest on the rumour-mill is that we’re interested in Ryad Boudebouz who I will confess to never having heard of before. He’s a midfielder who currently plays for FC Sochaux-Montbéliard in France’s Ligue 1.

He has 7 full caps for Algeria, switching his allegiance to them after playing his youth internationals for France. He’s 21 years-old, 5ft 9in high and has scored 14 goals in 94 appearances for Sochaux, but was particularly good this season with 8 goals and 7 assists in 38 games.

Allegedly Graham Carr has been lining Boudebouz up as a potential replacement for Joey Barton on the right of midfield.

The player has also attracted interest from Saint-Etienne, Lyons and Liverpool, but the French press speculates that Marseilles lead the chase with the club’s Sporting Director Jose Anigo supposedly due to meet the player very soon. (more…)
