Wenger confirms Nasri deal today: “Its likely to be done”


By Aries

Arsene Wenger has been speaking today to French Television about the Samir Nasri transfer.

He has confirmed that the deal is “likely to be done” and will probably be completed before the start of Euro 2008.

Speaking to Téléfoot on French TV station TF1 he said:

"It is likely to be. If it happens, it will be before the start of the Euro"

This comes after, as first reported on this site, the player’s agent tried to stall the negotiations by announcing that other teams were interested in signing Nasri. Nasri’s transfer to Arsenal hits a snag?

Apparently Nasri’s club Marseille are now asking for an improved offer aside the £11m (four-year deal) that Arsenal have put on the table.

This is likely to include additional payments in the future if Arsenal win domestic and European titles and is similar to the deal struck when Reyes was brought to the club form Sevilla.

Let’s hope this deal does not end up like Reyes’s did!

It appears therefore that the Hleb exodous from the Emirates is now getting closer and closer but apparently not without a significant profit for Arsenal.

It is rumoured that the player’s agent will be abandoning their efforts to buy out the remainder of Hleb’s contract following Wenger’s determination to drag them into the time consuming court process.

It is expected that Arsenal are now asking for £16m for allowing Hleb’s transfer to happen. This is likely to fund Nasri’s transfer to Arsenal and also a few others who are due to be announced soon….

What a piece of business it will be, if we can rid Kleb off for such a price.

Hopefully, Nasri's signature will be put to paper real soon, I'm starting to get sleepless nights, grrrrr.

Typical Arsene. He bought a player and sell another one. It's like he never spent his transfer budget at all.
