Arsenal will allow Samir Nasri to make the move to Manchester City, but only for a fee of £22 million, according to the Daily Mirror.

Nasri has refused to sign an extension on his contract with the Gunners, and with the playmaker’s current deal set to run out this time next year, Arsene Wenger has reportedly softened his stance on insisting he keep Nasri at the club.


While Manchester United were said to be interested in the star, City have emerged as run away favourites to secure Nasri’s signature. And now that Arsenal have decided they are indeed willing to be persuaded into letting go of the 24-year-old, a price will be discussed to ensure the Gunners have enough money in the bank to find a replacement for Nasri before the transfer window closes.

City were believed to have bid £15 million for Nasri, however with Arsenal making a demand of £7 million more, the northern club are now said to have decided that they will accept Arsenal’s terms and pay the sky high fee.

Nasri is currently getting ready to play for France against Chile in a friendly, which has reportedly angered Wenger, but with Arsenal now resigned to losing their star to City, the manager is now concentrating on how to use the £22 million brought in from his sale.
