Atletico de Madrid believe that they can sign French star Samir Nasri from under the noses of Arsenal, according to website Goal.com.
Despite Arsenal being on the verge of signing the Frenchman for weeks now, no deal can go through until France’s Euro 2008 campaign is over which has led to to Madrid offering Nasri another escape route out of France.
With Atletico being able to offer more money to both Nasri and Marseille it is likely that the Spanish club could prove to be real contenders for Nasri.
Nasri, 20, has been labelled as the “next Zinedine Zidane” by many in France and reports went as far to suggest that Nasri had put pen to paper at the Emirates. Now with Madrid in the frame, Nasri’s transfer to Arsenal may not be a straight-forward as previously thought.
