Real and Barca are both keen on bringing Fekir to La Liga this summer

Fekir has been absolutely superb for Lyon this season, with the midfielder having the best season of his career for the French giants.

The 24-year-old managed to clock up a total of 23 goals and eight assists in 40 appearances for Lyon this season as he helped the club secure a top four finish in Ligue 1.

With Andres Iniesta leaving Barcelona, the club will certainly be on the look out for a replacement, and that could be Fekir if they are serious about signing the Frenchman.

If things go to plan, we may see Real and Barca ignite further their already red-hot rivalry, as both look to land a deal for Fekir this summer.
