Former Arsenal player Samir Nasri could soon end his stint at Manchester City, according to reports.
Turkish Super Lig champions Besiktas have reached an agreement with City for the transfer of Nasri, Bleacher Report journalist Dean Jones understands.
A hamstring injury hampered Nasri’s chances of game time for The Citizens last term, as he managed to make just eight appearances in all competitions for the Etihad landlords. Jones revealed that Besiktas and Manchester City have agreed a deal for the French midfielder and that the two clubs will share the cost of Nasri’s wages.
Jones [@DeanJonesBR] tweeted: “Deal reached for Samir Nasri to move to Besiktas. The two clubs have agreed to split his wages.”
With the deal expected to be completed soon, Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport claimed the former Arsenal man will have to work of his fitness – as he returned to training overweight – before making his debut for Besiktas.
Nasri joined Arsenal in 2008 from Marseille, making 126 appearances and bagging 27 goals in his three year spell at the North London club.
