Arsenal near to record-breaking £15m man to help title push: Damn good player!

Arsene Wenger never unduly spends money on big name players for the sake of it, he tends to think long and hard and then plump for a good candidate to join his Gunners ranks, and it seems there is one player nearing a move to north London.

Arsenal are drawing ever nearer to completing the £15m capture of Samir Nasri from Marseille. (Various)

Samir Nasri has ‘Wenger-type player” written all over him and has made it into the French 30-man-squad in preparation for Euro 2008. The attacking midfielder has helped bring Marseille back into the French title reckoning (albeit no one can seem to catch Lyon) and the 20-year-old now seems prepared to leave his homeland for pastures new. He could be a very good signing indeed! What do Gunners fans think about this proposed move?
