Arsenal clinch Nasri signing

Arsenal have clinched the signing of France international winger Samir Nasri on a five year contract believed to be worth £2 million a season to the Marseille man.

Arsenal had been in discussions with L'OM for over three months after their on/off interest in Hatem Ben Arfa.

Arsene Wenger instead turned his attentions to Nasri, and has paid a reported £12 million for the privilege.

Nasri will join this week and will become the Gunners' second big signing after the arrival of Welsh international Aaron Ramsey.
