Last week Wenger said that there was a good chance Nasri would be an Arsenal player before the Euros kick off.
We still have a week to see if that is actually the case. I’d like to point out that no matter how much speculation there is, until its a done deal its not a done deal, no amount of hype will make this fact.
Basically everyone is bored on the football front and every tiny quote is analysed in detail in the hope that we can glean a minute detail of information.
So after all the talk we have another quote from Le Boss, talking on French radio RMC:
“Nasri, he interests me, I hope I will do it after the Euros.
“It is more complicated now because the wage differences [between the French and the English league] are not as big as they used to be.
“Just watch [Karim] Benzema. He is 20 and recently signed a new deal.“It is very difficult [to transfer players from the French league] but England is considered one of the two top leagues and the best players want to play against the best players.”
What we know – Arsene is interested in Nasri and would like to sign him.
What we can guess – Arsenal have been talking to the player and are currently negotiating a deal.
What we hope – That Nasri signs up.
I wouldn’t be too hopeful of signing him anytime soon. Really I’d prefer it if we just heard nothing until it actually happened.
