Leicester City attacker Riyad Mahrez has welcomed speculation linking him with a summer move to Barcelona.
The 24-year-old has been one of the standout players in the Premier League this season – netting 14 goals in addition to 10 assists.
The Algerian has insisted that he is happy at his current club, but admitted that “everyone wants to play with Lionel Messi” when questioned on a possible move to Camp Nou.
“It’s not my goal or my dream but obviously everyone wants to play with Lionel Messi. One day, maybe. Why not?” Mahrez told Goal.com.
The attacker joined Premier League leaders Leicester from French side Le Havre in the summer of 2014.
