Man City could sell former Arsenal star before transfer deadline after £54m arrival

Posted by

Juventus are reportedly keen to sign Man City attacking midfielder Samir Nasri after the £54m arrival of Kevin De Bruyne, according to the Daily Mirror.

BBC Sport confirmed the arrival of the Belgian international on Sunday, with the exciting new forward likely to keep former Arsenal man Nasri out of Manuel Pellegrini’s starting line up.

The French international has never quite found top form since moving to the Etihad Stadium, dropping in and out of the side under both Pellegrini and former manager Roberto Mancini.

Although a star name during his time with the Gunners, Nasri’s dip in form since moving to City could mean he is likely to be available this summer, with Juventus now hoping to pounce as the deadline approaches.

However, the Mirror claims that the 28-year-old himself is not seeking to quit his current club, as he is perhaps content to remain a squad player with a top club competing for trophies.

Nasri has played his part in winning two Premier League titles as well as the Capital One Cup during his time with City, and the club look on course to win more this season after a terrific start in the league, with four wins out of four so far.

Juventus have been highly successful as well in recent times, although playing in Italy’s Serie A no longer carries quite that same prestige as it used to, with the English top flight now considered one of the best in the world.
