Speaking in an interview with Sidney Govou, published on the former France international's own YouTube channel "Le Mi-Temps de Sidney", the 24-year-old said Barca would be an ideal destination.
"With so many top players, it would be so easy to fit in there," he told Govou. "Their style of play, like Rudi Garcia's with Roma, would suit me down to the ground. That is where I would be best able to show all my quality. It certainly wouldn't be a bad destination in terms of the climate either.
"PSG are a good team and what they are achieving is extraordinary. I won't forget that my first game as a professional for Metz came against them. You just can't tell what the future holds, but certainly PSG would be very interesting. They are a club who are trying to win the Champions League and they are certainly one of the top 10 clubs in Europe, and it's important for a footballer to win titles."
Nevertheless, the Bosnian -- who said earlier this month he would be happy to extend his contract -- believes the foundations are being laid for Roma to win trophies in the near future, saying he feels at home in the Italian capital.
"The fans in France certainly couldn't hold a candle to the Roma ones," he added. "Roma's fans live for their club. The only thing they talk about every day is their club, and I like this.
"It's the same passion we have in my country. Winning a title here would be like winning 10 for Milan or Juventus, and I really, really want to experience that."
