Nasri hope as Cesc deal nears

While Arsenal fans have long been resigned to the prospect of losing captain Cesc Fabregas to Barcelona, they certainly were not expecting this summer to see another one of their star players dragged about in the transfer gossip in a truly serious way.

Having enjoyed a decent season, albeit one that rather collapsed at about the same time as Arsenal lost their way in all four competitions they were fighting for, Nasri has attracted the interest of several top clubs, even though he is still lacking the goal scoring record that would see him evolve from being a decent player to one who is quite simply world class and on the same level as the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo. Those who bet on Premier League will know he would be a big loss.

Despite the fact that several clubs seem to be monitoring Nasri's situation, it does now appear that he will be prepared to talk to Arsene Wenger and restart the contract negotiations that had previously stalled and looked unlikely to resume unless the Gunners spent big money or announced that Fabregas would definitely not be sold.

Whatever the outcome of the Fabregas situation, the fact that Nasri has come back to the table to talk to Wenger suggests that there is soon to be announced activity in the transfer market from Arsenal, and in all likelihood it will have to be a big name player if it has managed to persuade Nasri that he may just be winning a few trophies if he sticks around at the Emirates Stadium for another few years. The football online betting suggests he will need to push on to secure glory though.

With Fabregas likely to be finalising his deal to Barcelona around the time these talks should resume, the fact remains that a new contract for Nasri would be a huge boost to Gunners fans, who are starting to get more than a little annoyed by the lack of ambition shown by the club.

you act as though Cesc signing for Barcelona is a foregone conclusion. 31 million will not cut it. Barcelona still have a big gap to fill before Arsenal listen to a legitimate offer wouldn't you say?

very true. Fabregas is a gone case. and for the better. But nasri should stay.
