The Telegraph, the Mirror and the Daily Mail report that Wenger’s lack of activity in the transfer window are starting to drive Nasri away from the club, with Wenger publicly stating that recruitments are not likely to be finalised around the end of July and the beginning of August saying: “I am very active on the phone.”
“Everyone is in a standby position, where everyone is waiting for the first step, expecting a super-transfer.
“It will move in late July and early August. Then we will analyse the gaps in each team.”
With current stars Clichy and Fabregas set to depart the Emirates, the doubt festering in Nasri’s mind over Arsenal’s future is nothing but dismal where crisis talks over his future are expected to take place on Monday.
Arsene will have a huge task on his hands in order to try and persuade Nasri to stay, with Manchester United set to lodge a £15m bid when and if he tells Wenger he wants to leave. With both City and Chelsea both monitoring the situation, the circumstances at Arsenal are dire and if Wenger cannot convince him to stay he will face a critical choice.
As emphasised in the last Nasri report, Wenger obviously has to act now in the transfer window. If not he will face a critical choice of whether to cash-in on the £20m star or risk losing him on a free transfer next summer.
