The Morocco international fell out of favour with manager Mark Hughes recently and was forced to train with the Premier League outfit's U23 side.
And the forward has stated that he wants to return to a familiar ground, with Marseille believed to be interested in the former Angers player.
“It's true that today a return to France interests me a great deal,” Boufal told SFR Sport.
“A good club in France that plays in Europe, of course, I would be very very interested in returning.
“It's a league I know, a language I know... so it's true, a return to France.
“L'Olympique de Marseille remain a very big club. This year they've made it to the final of the Europa League... of course, L'OM interests me, if they are interested, why not sign for them?”
