The France international had been keen to stay with the Ligue 1 side for another season having helped them to secure a Champions League spot.
But it now seems that the 21-year-old, who has chalked up an impressive 15 goals and 13 assists, is open to moving on should the right offer come along in the summer of 2016.
His father and agent, Mohammed, recently claimed that Arsenal would be the only side that he would leave for, after they acknowledged the club’s long standing interest in him.
But he has now also claimed that he would jump at the chance to join La Liga champions Barcelona should they decide to make an offer.
“Yes my future is to spend another year to play Champions League football with Lyon,” Fekir said. “It will be fabulous to play in that competition here.
“After that, we will see what happens. Ever since I was young, the club of my dreams has been Barcelona. If I have the chance to go there one day, it would be magnificent.”
