The Daily Star is reporting that Samir Nasri will stay with Arsenal for another year, and will not push to make a £20 million move to Manchester City.

Nasri has been the subject of transfer speculation for the last month, with the playmaker’s current contract running out at the end of next season.


And while Arsenal have desperately been trying to hold onto Nasri, with Manchester City coming into the mix, Arsene Wenger was reportedly worried that Nasri might decide to take a wage rise and follow Gael Clichy to City.

But Nasri has reportedly told Arsenal that he plans on staying with the club for at least another year, with a new contract depending on whether the club can break their trophyless run next season.

Manchester United have also been linked with Nasri, though City were favourites to sign the Arsenal star. But for now at least, Wenger can breathe a sigh of relief that at least one of his top players will remain with the Gunners.
