Nasri Joins Gunners

Nasri Joins Gunners

Arsenal have announced, via their official website, the signing of 21 year old French international Samir Nasri from Marseille.

The long anticipated transfer, confirmed this morning, is the second notable addition to the squad this summer following the signing of teenager Aaron Ramsey last month.

The web site reports manager Arsène Wenger saying: 'We are delighted to be signing Samir Nasri. He is young, quick and technically an outstanding player. He has shown great potential with his performances for Marseille and the French national team over the past two seasons and he will add great quality to our squad.'

With Nasri adding: 'I'm very happy to become an Arsenal player, it means such a lot to me. This is a very important step in my life as a football player because Arsenal is a massive club. I really hope everything will go well for me here. I will my best for Arsenal and its fans and I am honoured to be part of such a great football club.'

Nasri will join the rest of the squad on the 21st July which means we won't get an early chance to see him in action against Barnet but almost certainly he will feature, expectedly in a wide midfield position, in some of the later pre-season games.

Finally I can say "What a great signing!". I think this guy has the potential to be one of Wengers greatest signings. Can't wait to see him play.

I love how dignified the club are when doing transfers. Not that it helps in any way in this morally depraved age, but everything about Arsenal is upright, from the way we play to our relationships with other clubs and players.
