Lyon forward Nabil Fekir dreams of playing for Barcelona and winning the Ballon d’Or during his career.
The 22-year-old formed a formidable partnership with Alexandre Lacazette – totalling 40 goals between them – in his breakout season as Hubert Fournier’s side finished second in Ligue 1 in 2014-15.
Fekir is determined to maintain his good form for Lyon, but admitted he has his eyes set on a transfer to Camp Nou in the future.
“In my head, I have many dreams. I will not talk about them all immediately,” he said in an interview with L’Equipe.
“I want to do my best for Lyon and then join a big club – that’s my goal.
“My favourite team is Barcelona, but I’m aware that much work is needed. To play for Barcelona one day is my dream.
“We will see [if I am at Lyon next season]. As I have not played much this season, logically, I should stay at Lyon for another campaign.
“Aside from that, if clubs present themselves, we will have to see.”
The Lyon academy graduate, who has been sidelined since September with a knee ligament injury, disclosed he harbours an ambition to win the Ballon d’Or.
“It’s not totally crazy, no. Hope keeps people alive,” Fekir continued.
“I will not say that I am going to win the Ballon d’Or, but I have that in mind, even if that might seem absurd.”
