Boudebouz, who was once on trial at Manchester United, has helped Real Betis achieve Europa League qualification are a successful first campaign in Spain. A move to Madrid would offer him Champions League football.

The move to Andalucia was the first time that Boudebouz played his football outside of France, and saw him link up with international team-mate Aissa Mandi.

Boudebouz is renowned for his brilliant delivery from set pieces, often either scoring or assisting from free-kicks and corners. 

He has two goals in 24 appearances for the Algerian national team, and went to the World Cup in 2010, but has been unfairly frozen out of the squad for the last couple of years.

Diego Simeone is reportedly keen on a move for the 28-year-old, who he believes can fit into his style of play. Boudebouz would also be available for a cheap price compared to other potential targets.

He scored two goals and created three assists in La Liga, and has been an influential part of the team that finished 6th in the table. Atletico have also been linked with a move for Faouzi Ghoulam this summer. Only time will tell if either move materialises.
