Nasri Offer Accepted, But We Might Get Screwed

Nasri Offer Accepted, But We Might Get Screwed

The agent of Arsenal target Samir Nasri has revealed that Olympique Marseille have accepted Arsenal's offer for the player after claming the player is considering Arsenal's offer.

The Gunners wouldn't be able to speak to Nasri had their offer not being accepted, or in this case, had they not met the magic number that triggers the playmakers release clause.

However, it appears to me that Nasri's agent is setting the Gunners up for a fall and is merely trying to raise the player's profile and possibly getting other clubs to come in with better offers.

'We are not in a hurry. It is true that we are examining an offer from Arsenal, which is interesting for Samir Nasri from a sporting point of view,' said his agent Jean-Pierre Bernes.

'But I have also received other offers.'

It wouldn't be the first time Arsene has been thwarted in his transfer plans after players agent have revealed transfer talks before only for Real Madrid to steal the targets at the last second.

Unpalatable though it maybe the agent is doing his job in trying to apply more pressure to get the best deal possible out of us. I can't imagine that anyone genuinely interested in Nasri hasn't already been in touch as the story has been in the open for a while now. It comes down to how much we want him and how much he wants to play for us irrespective of what the agent says or does.

Meh, if he doesn't come to the club I do not really care, from what I've heard he is a pretty good player with lots of potential but the club needs players who would fight to get in, not players who have to be coaxed.

United4life - I think his signing will be BECAUSE of a Hleb departure rather than the otherway round.

I really have a bad feeling about this now, we have all seen this happen before Robinhio baptista Ribery etc surley if the player realy wanted to move to Arsenal it would have been done. Why has the agent only spoke about an offer from Arsenal and not named the other clubs. I spoke to my friend who lives in France and he says this kid is amazing and that we are getting him very cheap. I am praying this goes through or like previous seasons Wenger won't have got his number 1 transfer target which is becoming a worrying trend.

arsenal wont go nowhere if we keep letting players go and think its ok that we sign a player to replace him, we need to be able to bring hleb or nasri of the bench, our squad simply aint good enough!!

This little transfer is a microcosm of everything about Arsenal right now, if Arsenal fail to sign Nasri then they can forget their ambitious plans, there are onmly a certain amount of top class players in the world, all the top clubs are going for them, for far too long we have seen top quality players who should be at Arsenal end up in other teams due to financial reasons. Ribery anyone? Arsenal need to make their mind up, do they want to remain part of football's elite or not, if yes then they have to accept that the methods of doing this a far from ideal, if they ant to stick to their ideals then they will end up like an amazing underground artist who makes no many due to his principles about commercialism. This Nasri deal is crucial.

No he wouldn't and he shouldn't. If Arsne purchased a player for 30 mil I would be disappointed to tell you the truth. Also what people don't realise is the more big name players you get the less your youth players will grow, Fabregas was able to grow as a player because he was given the chance to play look at him now. If some big name was brought in to fill that position he wouldn't have had the confidence or chance.
