Arsenal FC have officially confirmed that they have agreed terms with Manchester City over the sale of Samir Nasri.
The clubs official website wrote:
“The 24-year-old midfielder, who has spent three years with the Gunners, has been omitted from Arsenal’s squad which flies to Udinese this afternoon and instead will travel north for a medical.
The move will be subject to Nasri passing a medical and formal registration processes.”
Arsène Wenger has stated that he intends to ‘plug the gaps’ left by the departures of key men Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri before the transfer window closes:
“What is at stake at the moment is for us to qualify tomorrow and we can only do it with the players we have at the moment,” said Wenger.

“They are good enough to achieve that and therefore after that we will see what we can do. We are working very hard on the transfer market.
“We brought in [Alex Oxlade-] Chamberlain – you will see that he will be a great player. Gervinho will be a great player for this club too but we want ideally more. We are short in midfield at the moment and that is where we want to strengthen.”
What about the defence Wenger? It’s clear we need to strengthen there too. And why have both Fabregas and Nasri left this late in the transfer window when it was inevitable they both were going to leave? Although Wenger won’t be strengthening the team in the next couple of days as he is focused on the Udinese match, he better add some real quality to the midfield in the form of Eden Hazard at least and M’Villa too, AND add a defender. Wenger you have so much money to spend, just do it so that we can win something this season!
