However, Lozano has revealed that there was an interest from his "dream" club, Barcelona, post the World Cup.

"The World Cup went well for me, and a lot of clubs went to see me. That's something really nice for me. The truth is, with Barcelona my agent told me there was interest. He'll see the options that come."

"For me, it would be a dream to come to this great club if God allows it in the future, but the most important thing right now is focusing on PSV and enjoy it as much as possible," said the Mexican forward.

The PSVEindhovenwinger, who scored 19 goals in all competitions in his first year in European football, will play against Barcelona when PSV travel to the Camp Nou to play the La Liga champions on Tuesday.

Lozano got off to a flying start in the current season, scoring 6 goals in 8 games, including 4 goals in 5 games in the Eredivisie. The Mexican winger plays on the left midfield but likes to drift inside to get scoring or passing opportunities, and could be a major threat for the Catalan defence when they face off in the Champions League.
