Samir Nasri To Be Offered a Short Term Deal By West Ham United

If reports are to be believed Samir Nasri is all set to don the West Ham United jersey in January.

The former Arsenal midfielder is reportedly undergoing a medical at the club and if all goes well he could be signed for a short term contract with an option to extend.

The midfielder is currently serving a ban for taking doping substances during his stay at the USA where he allegedly violated the doping code of conduct by consuming 500 millilitres of sterile water containing nutrients at a Los Angeles clinic.

He was banned from all football activities until December but can start training with a team from November. Manager Manuel Pellegrini is aware of the talent the 31 year old possess and is ready to meet his wage demand which is in the tune of £80,000 a week.

The Hammers lost Andriy Yarmolenko for the remaining part of the season for an Achilles injury and Nasri’s inclusion would be a big boost for him. The French international has had his disciplinary problems but if he is managed to stay out of it he could be a prized asset for the London giants.

The Hammers are yet to confirm something officially but an announcement could be made anytime soon.
