Nasri move to Arsenal not finalised: Agent (SN)

France international playmaker Samir Nasir has not had his move from Marseille to Arsenal finalised, his agent Jean-Pierre Bernes told AFP on Wednesday afternoon.

French daily L'Equipe reported on Wednesday that Nasri would be “signing a four-year contract in the next few hours” for Arsene Wenger's Premiership club.

Nasri, who helped Marseille clinch third place in the league and Champions League qualification in their 4-3 win over Strasbourg on Saturday, also told l'Equipe: “Perhaps it's my last match for Marseille. It would be great to leave on that note.”

However Nasri's agent Bernes said: “No agreement has been finalised though it's true we are looking into a bid by Arsenal which interests Nasri in sporting terms, but it's also true that other offers have arrived in my office.”

He did not reveal the origin of these other bids for the 20-year-old attacking midfielder, who started all 30 of his league matches for Marseille this season.

L'Equipe also reported: “The two clubs (Marseille and Arsenal) agreed a transfer fee yesterday. Nasri, who extended his contract at Marseille at the beginning of May to 2012, is going to bring a little more than 15 million euros to Marseille who had been hoping for 17.8m.”

Regional daily newspaper La Provence also said on its internet site that the transfer had been finalised.

Bernes added however: “Samir Nasri cannot already be considered an Arsenal player, not at all. It's premature.”

In recent weeks, there had been rumours of swap deal with Lyon's attacking midfielder Hatem Ben Arfa coming to Marseille and Nasri, touted as the next Zinedine Zidane, going to Lyon.
