Samir Nasri 'undergoing West Ham United medical'

Samir Nasri playing for Manchester City

Nasri will reunite with Manuel Pellegrini, who worked with the playmaker at Manchester City, where Nasri played the best football of his career.

Former Arsenal midfielder and infamous bad boy Samir Nasri is now undergoing a medical at West Ham United, according to Standard Sport.

A month later he was banned, initially for six months, for using an intravenous drip treatment that contravened World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) rules, leading to a Spanish Anti-Doping investigation.

Nasri has been a free agent since leaving Turkish side Antalyaspor in January, having made just eight appearances for the Super Lig outfit.


The 31-year-old midfielder would not be eligible to play until January 1, but is permitted to train with any club from this month.

The Chilean coached Nasri previously for three seasons in Manchester with the Frenchman playing an influential role in City's Premier League and League Cup title wins in 2014.

They also rank 13th for chances created across the division as well as 11th for goals scored which perhaps highlights why Pellegrini is interested in recruiting an attack-minded midfield player of Nasri's ilk.

Samir Nasir undergoes a medical with West Ham United ahead of signing a short-term deal with the Hammers, according to a report.
