Arsenal are fighting to keep hold of Samir Nasri, despite continued interest from Manchester United and Manchester City, according to the Daily Mirror.
While £25 million has reportedly been placed over Nasri’s head, Arsenal are hoping that they can hold out and talk the 24-year-old into signing a new contract, no matter what price is offered by Manchester City or United.
Manchester United have been particularly open about their interest in Nasri over the past couple of weeks, with United players speaking out about the Frenchman being a great addition to the squad.
But Manchester City are also in the mix to sign Nasri, with some papers claiming today that City are ‘on the brink’ of gaining the star’s signature.
Nasri recently admitted that he wants to win trophies in his footballing career, putting Arsenal on alert that he may in fact be considering a move to either United or City this summer.
"Money has never been my motivation. I have always taken decisions from a football point of view,” Nasri said.
"I don't want to sign for a club where I wouldn't be playing the football that I like, where I wouldn't feel happy, just for the sake of money.
"I am hungry for titles. I play football because I love this sport and want to feel the emotion of winning. "
"We already earn huge wages. The priority is to make a big career and to win titles.”
