Reports in France have claimed that Mauricio Pochettino is keen on securing the 23-year old's signature after Saints scouts watched him in action against Auxerre last season.
The Algerian international was linked with a switch to Liverpool last summer, but with just one year remaining on his contract, he says he is will assess his options.
"I have a contract until 2014 here so let's see what the club will say, I am open to talk," Boudebouz told SkySports.com.
"My dream has always been to play in England or Spain.
"To be linked with Southampton is interesting; it is everyone's dream to be linked with good teams in big leagues in Europe.
"Southampton has a good history in the Premier League but I have a contract with Sochaux who is like Southampton in France."
