In-demand Sochaux midfielder Ryad Boudebouz has thrown his future into doubt by revealing his fury at coach Francis Gillot's imminent departure.
After leading the club to a fifth-place finish, Gillot looks highly likely to leave on bad terms, with Bordeaux thought to be ready to hand him their managerial role.
Boudebouz, who is reportedly a target for Liverpool and Newcastle, wants the current Sochaux squad to remain intact, but admits he may consider a move should an attractive offer come up.
Speaking of Gillot's departure, Boudebouz told L'Equipe: "I am disgusted. He is a coach who could build a young group. He knew how to talk to the young players.
"I hope everyone will remain at the club next term, otherwise we will lose matches and I don't want to experience that.
"I feel fine at Sochaux but if I have good opportunities, we will think about them."
The 21-year-old Algeria international scored eight goals in Ligue 1 this season, helping Sochaux qualify for next season's Europa League.
