For weeks now we have all been awaiting the confirmation Samir Nasri, the Marseille star has signed for the Gunners. No such luck yet! A few weeks ago, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger reported he wanted it wrapped up before the Euros.

It now seems there is a slight issue with the wages which has put a delay on the deal until after the Euros.

“Nasri, he interests me,” Wenger confirmed to a French reporter.

“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,” he added.

“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.”
