Samir Nasri looks forward to welcoming Marouane Chamakh at Arsenal next season if the Bordeaux striker joins as expected this summer.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger revealed last week that there is a 'good chance' the out-of-contract Morocco international, who has scored 13 goals in 34 Ligue 1 games this term,  will sign at the Emirates on a Bosman free.

And French star Nasri, who played against Chamakh during his spell at former club Marseille, believes the in demand striker would be a perfect fit for Arsenal.

'It would be a great signing for us,' Nasri told Arsenal's official magazine. 'He is a player that I really like.

'Chamakh plays for the team, gives everything and works very hard. He has big potential and would fit perfectly in our team.'

Nasri remains hopeful that Wenger can keep the core of his squad next season, adamant that injuries aside they can improve next season and end their five-year wait to win a trophy.

  'But this season had proved that we have everything to compete and we havelearnt so much.

'I am hoping that our squad will stay unchanged becausewe are really good and with a year more experience, we can achieve somegreat things next season.'
