Sky Sports sources understand Manchester City are in the final stages of negotiations regarding the proposed signing of Arsenal's Samir Nasri.
City have been chasing Nasri's signature all summer and they are now thought to be close to bringing the France international to the Etihad Stadium.
Talks between both clubs are thought to be at an advanced stage and the North West outfit are hoping to make the talented midfielder their latest summer capture.
The 24-year-old's future at Arsenal has been the subject of conjecture for some time, with the Frenchman refusing to sign a new deal at the Emirates.
Gunners chief Arsene Wenger was hopeful of keeping one of his key men at the Emirates, but it appears he has now decided to sell rather than risk losing him for nothing when his contract expires next summer.
Nasri has not featured for Arsenal so far this season and it appears he is on the verge of sealing his switch away from the club.
His signing would be a major boost for City boss Roberto Mancini as he looks to mount a serious bid for the Premier League title this season.
