Arsene Wenger believes Samir Nasri can make an impact "at the highest level", but looks set to have to wait a little longer before completing the capture of the French playmaker from Marseille.

It was understood the midfielder, who can play down the centre or on the wing, had been due in England for a medical at the weekend and to put the finishing touches to a £12million, four-year deal. But Gunners boss Wenger has indicated the formal completion of the transfer may now not happen until after the 21-year-old has taken part in Euro 2008 with France.

"At 21 years old his whole future is ahead of him and he has (quite) a margin for progressing further," Wenger told French newspaper La Provence. "He has, in any case, the qualities needed to assert himself at the highest level."
