French international Nabil Fekir has opened the door to a move abroad by naming a list of leagues and club that make him “dream” – and one of them is Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City.
The 24-year-old Lyon star has been tipped to become a top player in the game, but injuries set him back for a while. With those problems now behind him, Fekir is impressing for the Ligue 1 side, having found the net 11 times in 14 appearances this season.
Barcelona and Arsenal have been credited with an interest recently, but he is more interested in the two leagues those clubs play in than any specific club.
“There’s nothing concrete with Barcelona,” Fekir said on TF1’s ‘Telefoot’ show. “Spain makes me dream – Real Madrid, Barcelona, Atletico Madrid. Those are big clubs.
“But there is also England, with Manchester City, Manchester United and Arsenal. I do not dream of any club in particular…”
From a City perspective, Fekir would seem to be a luxury more than a necessity, with the club not short on excellent attacking midfielders. However, Pep Guardiola has already revealed that he will shake up his squad next summer, whatever the outcome of this season, to try and take his ‘Shark Team’ to an even higher level.
