Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger has revealed that the signing of Marseille's highly-rated playmaker Samir Nasri is 'likely' to be completed.

The Gunners have been strongly linked with a swoop for France international Nasri, with reports claiming he will replace midfielder Alexander Hleb, who is expected to leave Emirates Stadium this summer.

And Wenger has confirmed that talks are underway as he looks to secure Nasri's signature before the Euro 2008 finals in Austria and Switzerland, which start on 7th June.

"It is likely to happen," he told Telefoot.

"And if it does happen, it will be before the start of the European Championship."

Nasri, who has often been likened to Zinedine Zidane, has been included in the provisional France squad for Euro 2008.
