With the Arsenal futures of Cesc Fabregas and Samir Nasri seemingly hanging in the balance, Manchester City are reportedly ready to further disrupt the Gunners by bidding for Gael Clichy.

According to The Telegraph, City are considering making an offer of £7 million for the left-back, who has only one-year remaining on his current deal.

Arsenal are desperate to retain the services of the 25-year-old but he, like Nasri, has so far rejected the offer of a new contract, which has led the likes of Liverpool and Paris Saint-Germain to make tentative enquiries.

Joining mega-bucks City, however, may hold a greater appeal to the France international, who is likely to see the wages he receives at Arsenal substantially increased.


A direct passage into the Champions League will also be on offer at Eastlands next season, after Roberto Mancini's side beat Arsenal to third spot in the Barclays Premier League.

Arsene Wenger, though, stated earlier this week that talks between the club and Clichy were still ongoing, while also commenting that a Jack Wilshere is set to be rewarded with an improved deal.

After an excellent first full season in the Arsenal first team, Wilshere may have to take on a role of greater importance next year should Fabregas depart for Barcelona.
