Following the disappointing result at home to Liverpool, Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has refused to comment whether the deal taking midfielder Samir Nasri to Manchester City will go through or not.
Reports from France have emerged that the transfer for the French international has collapsed, even though it was suggested earlier this week that the deal was imminent after Roberto Mancini had revealed the two clubs were in advanced talks and his desire to bring Nasri to Eastland’s.
Despite the on-going transfer saga, Nasri made his first appearance of the season in today’s clash with Liverpool, which saw the Gunners lose 2-0 at home. Wenger revealed after the game that he himself was in the dark about reports that the deal for Nasri had fallen through.
“I don’t know more than you about that,” said Wenger.
“I think he had a good game and I said before the game that he was committed to play and he did not only play but he played well.
“I always say I’ve tried to keep Samir Nasri. He loves the club; he wants to play for the club.
“At the moment I’m happy he’s here.”
