Samir Nasri is set to be rewarded for his early season form with a new five year deal.
Nasri, 23, has been outstanding for Arsenal and the club are moving to tie him down on a new contract extension.
French midfielder Nasri’s current deal expires in 2012 and Arsene Wenger has admitted the club are trying to ensure key players are not allowed to run down their contracts.
Arsenal boss Wenger wants to be certain the club’s prize assets do not get too far into the final two years of their contracts and therefore Nasri is top of their hit-list for negotiations.
Arsenal are also likely to try and negotiate a contract extension for Andriy Arshavin, 29, in the next few months. (Daily Mirror)
Samir Nasri has been one of the biggest success stories of Arsenal’s season so far.
Like Cesc Fabregas did last season, he seems to have added a consistent goalscoring threat to his play, and as a result has scored seven goals in his last seven games.
While Arshavin is frequently derided for his perceived lack of effort in a similar vein to Dimitar Berbatov’s critics last season, the Russian still tends to come up with the goods when it matters.
There are numerous occasions where the only thing fans can remember Arshavin doing in a game is scoring a goal or making an assist – but his ability to unlock sides in the final third is an important part of the Arsenal machine, and he and Rosicky are excellent options for the Gunners to have.
