Arsenal have being heavily linked with Lyon’s midfielder, Nabil Fekir. However, the player has come out to douse any reports claiming he would exit the French club any time soon.
“As I have not played much this season, logically, I should stay for another season at Lyon,” Fekir told L’Equipe. “If clubs present themselves, we will have to see. I have a lot of dreams.
“I will not talk about them all immediately. 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.
The 22-year-old added: “My favourite club is Barcelona. But I need to work a lot, I am aware of that.” He has 4 goals and 1 assist in 4 League appearances for club.
