Spanish side Real Betis have launched a bid for West Ham United target Ryad Boudebouz, according to reports coming out of France.

French media outlet France Football is reporting that Real Betis have offered €7m for Montpellier star Ryad Boudebouz.

There are many clubs interested in the Ligue 1 play maker, who caught the eye last season.

Alongside Real Betis and West Ham, the likes of Sampdoria, Newcastle United and Bayer Leverkusen are credited with an interest in the Algerian international.

However, it is La Liga outfit Real Betis who have firmed up their interest with the first bid, testing the water at €7m.

Montpellier are thought to be holding out for a fee closer to €15m for Ryad Boudebouz after his impressive year for the South France side.

In 33 Ligue 1 appearances, Boudebouz weighed in with eleven goals and nine assists, catching the attention of a number of top clubs across Europe.

West Ham have some decent options in the attacking midfield regions after snapping up Marko Arnautovic.

Arnautovic will compete with Manuel Lanzini, Andre Ayew and Michail Antonio for the attacking midfield spots but peripheral players Robert Snodgrass and Sofiane Feghouli could be moved on to bring someone like Boudebouz in.

France Football believe that the 27-year-old’s market value is between €8m and €12m.
