Gunners step up Nasri chase
21 May 2008 - 17:35:56
The agent of Marseille's highly-rated youngster Samir Nasri claims Arsenal have made an offer for the 20-year-old Frenchman.
Nasri only recently signed a long-term deal with the French side, but his agent, Jean-Pierre Bernes, insists the Gunners are in pole position to snap up his client before the start of next season.
"We are not in a hurry," Bernes told southern French newspaper La Provence.
"It is true that we are examining an offer from Arsenal, which is interesting for Samir Nasri from a sporting point of view.
"But I have also received other offers."
Nasri made four appearances during France's successful Euro 2008 qualifying campaign and has already played more than 100 matches for Marseille since making his first-team debut almost four years ago.
