Gunners capture £13 million French star

Arsenal have today completed the signing of Marseille midfielder Samir Nasri after months of uncertainty over the players future. The French international admitted that he was interested in a move to the Premier League a few weeks ago leading Arsene Wenger to making a £13 million bid for him.

Nasri, 20, becomes Arsenal's second summer signing after Cardiff City striker Aaron Ramsey. Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger said: "At 21 years old his whole future is ahead of him and he has (quite) a margin for progressing further. "He has, in any case, the qualities needed to assert himself at the highest level." Nasri is likely to provide cover for Alexander Hleb who is likely to leave the Emirates in the next few weeks.

I personally feel Nasri is a quality signing, that will prove many people wrong who think he is overated. His skill on the ball is terrific and he is not afraid to shoot and at £13 million I think he will prove to be a superb signing by Arsene Wenger. I feel the Gunners just need one more striker now and they will have a terrific squad for next season.
