Nabil Fekir favours Barcelona move

Lyon attacker Nabil Fekir has revealed that Barcelona would be his first-choice destination if and when he decides to depart his current club.

The 22-year-old, who has been strongly linked with a move to Arsenal, scored 15 times in 39 games for Lyon last season and also hit four in four at the start of this campaign before suffering a knee problem.


The Frenchman is currently on the sidelines with the injury, but when pushed on his future, Fekir admitted that Barcelona is his dream club. “As I have not played much this season, logically, I should stay for another season at Lyon. Aside from that, if clubs present themselves, we will have to see. In my head, I have a lot of dreams,” Fekir told L’Equipe. “I will not talk about them all immediately.

Already, I want to be back on the pitch, to give the best of myself with Lyon, and then join a great club. That is my aim. My favourite club is Barcelona. But I need to work a lot, I am aware of that.”

Fekir came through the youth system at Lyon and made more than 60 appearances for the French club’s B team before stepping into the senior side in 2013.
