Deal done, Emirates Stadium midfield on his way to the Etihad.
Manchester City have sealed the signing of Samir Nasri from Arsenal on a four-year deal after he successfully underwent a medical.
The Gunners announced on Tuesday that they had agreed to sell the Frenchman to their Premier League rivals as he had less than a year remaining on his contract at the Emirates Stadium.
Nasri had played for Arsenal in their 2-0 defeat to Liverpool at the weekend but has now completed a switch to the Etihad Stadium for a fee in the region of £24million.
Roberto Mancini will be delighted to have landed Nasri after identifying him earlier in the summer as somebody that could strengthen City’s midfield.
Nasri’s departure will come a huge blow to Arsene Wenger, especially as it comes so soon after Cesc Fabregas left to join hometown club Barcelona.

So there you have it. How do Arsenal fans think about this deal? Does the selling of another top star, hot on the heels of Cesc Fabregas and Gael Clichy, show that the North London club lack ambition? Was Arsene Wenger mad to sell to a rival Premier League club or was the decision made a board level without the Gunners boss’s approval?
Man City fans will be pleased with another high profile signing but what will this mean for the likes of James Milner or Adam Johnson?
