Spanish daily newspaper Marca has revealed that Europa League holders Sevilla are set to complete the signing of French midfielder Samir Nasri from Manchester City.
The Frenchman has decided to leave Etihad Stadium after failing to play himself back into the first team plans of new boss Pep Guardiola.
As a result, he is now set to join Sevilla on a season-long loan, and the interesting thing is there is no buy-out clause included.
Los Rojiblancos plan to use Nasri as a replacement for Yevhen Konoplyanka, who was surprisingly allowed to join Schalke on a season-long loan with a compulsory purchase clause.
The 29-year-old didn’t exactly manage to prove his worth at the Etihad Stadium and he should see the move to Sevilla as a perfect opportunity to get his career back on track.
Since joining Manchester City from Arsenal, Nasri has managed 27 goals and 40 assists in 176 competitive appearances.
