Real Betis have rejected a £13.4m offer for Algerian international Ryad Boudebouz from Besiktas, as reported by Mundo Deportivo.
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 Besiktas would keep the player in Europa 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.
In the past couple of seasons, we have seen Algerian footballers move to Turkey. Islam Slimani just moved on loan to Fenerbahce, and Sofiane Feghouli won the Turkish title with Galatasaray.
If the move went ahead, Boudebouz would be the fifth Algerian to currently play in the Turkish Super Lig. He would be a great addition for Besiktas, who made the last 16 of the Champions League earlier in the year.
