Man City find it hard to offload Samir Nasri: 3 Premier League clubs that can snap him up


Samir Nasri is finding it difficult to find a new club. Manchester City are not agreeing to drop their valuation of the player and interested clubs are not ready to pay his extremely high wages.  City Value the Frenchman in £10 million to £15 million range and he currently charges City a massive £185,000 a week in wages.

Nasri played last year at Sevilla where he impressed but they are unwilling to heed to the demands of both the Club and Nasri.

Pep Guardiola has made it clear that Nasri does not feature in his plans despite impressing in pre-season which is why City are desperate to get him off their wage bill. But they are not under any pressure to do so by reducing his current valuation.

The club have yet to receive offers for the 30-year-old due to the nature of his wages and City’s valuation.

Nasri is not short on quality though and can be an excellent addition to clubs looking to add on it. Although a bit of a troublemaker in the dressing room, Nasri has been immensely impressive in his time in England at both Arsenal and Man City.

Here are 3 Premier League Clubs that should look to sign him:

Tottenham Hotspur:

Yes, you heard that right. Spurs have not added any signing so far this summer. Although they arguably boast of the strongest and the most stable starting XI in the league, competing on multiple fronts is something which they have struggled to cope with. It is highlighted by their early exit from the UEFA Champions League last season. They have hugely talented players on their roster but one cannot deny the fact that at times they are found wanting due to lack of experience. In a season where they have to play away from home comforts of White Hart Lane at Wembley, adding a hugely experienced player in the form of Nasri is a gamble worth taking. Pochettino prefers signing youngsters but this particular signing if considered will make the team more potent in the Champions League.

Swansea City:

The Welsh based side survived a dirty relegation battle last summer to eventually stay up. Paul Clement managed to guide them to safety after a rather dismal campaign. Those problems from last year will arise again as the club has not strengthened at all so far. With Gylfi Sigurdsson highly linked with a move away from the Liberty Stadium, Swansea could end up really struggling to survive in the Premier League. With the Club yet to spend extravagantly in the market, in Samir Nasri they could pull off an excellent signing. He can play in the Sigurdsson role for them and if they manage to keep the Iceland international, the Frenchman can form an exciting partnership with him.

Leicester City:

With Riyad Mahrez linked to AS Roma, chances are that he will leave before the end of the window. Leicester could suffer from a serious shortage of attacking midfield/winger options if the Algerian parts ways with the club with just Marc Albrighton and Demarai Gray available. Samir Nasri can not only provide depth but could look to be the creator-in-chief at the King Power Stadium. Nasri can play in multiple roles including winger, attacking midfield and even center midfield and he can provide William Shakespeare’s side necessary creativity on the field.
