West Ham United are likely to offer Samir Nasri a short term contract to prove his credentials once again in the Premier League.
Nasri has been training with the Hammers in a bid to earn a deal worth £80,000 per week. The former Arsenal and Manchester City midfielder was the subject of an 18 month ban after he received an intravenous treatment at a Los Angeles clinic.
Nasri would be free to don any jersey from 1st January and his prospects of getting a Hammers contract are looking brighter at this moment. The Hammers already lost Andriy Yarmolenko for the rest of the season and midfielder Jack Wilshere has suffered a fresh setback in his recuperation of the injury.
The midfielder is likely to be sidelined for another five months so Pellegrini might feel the urge of signing some reinforcement to plug the gap. Nasri is poised to receive a six months contract with an option to extend it if he manages to impress the gaffer.
The Hammers have shown real intent in the last few matches and adding Nasri would be an added boost for Pellegrini who is eyeing a top six finish for his club by the end of this season.
