The former France Under-21 international has been attracting the attentions of a whole host of big-name clubs of late after a series of impressive displays on the wing for the Basque outfit, with both Premier League leaders Arsenal and mega-rich Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain having been mentioned in the same breath as the 22-year-old.

And now the player himself has opened the door to a possible move away from Spain at the end of the campaign by telling French radio station RMC: “I will not say no to playing for a club in my home country. Ligue 1 is becoming a more and more attractive proposition, year after year and it is bringing big players there.

“When I was very little, I was a Marseille man. But when Sonny Anderson arrived at Lyon, let’s just say I changed my mind…

“I want to finish the season with my club. The rest…it is something to look at another time. I have not been contacted by any clubs.”
