Arsenal close in on Marseille playmaker, according to agent
Marseille midfielder Samir Nasri should complete his transfer to Arsenal in around '10 days', according to the player's agent.
The playmaker has been strongly linked with a move to Emirates Stadium, with manager Arsene Wenger a keen admirer of Nasri's quality.
A deal had reportedly been struck towards the end of June after the player's official website
announced the France international had secured his transfer to North London.
However, the statement proved to be premature, and was subsequently removed, sparking confusion over the progress of the switch.
Since then, Marseille have wrapped up the signing of Hatem Ben Arfa from Lyon - a move which has reportedly paved the way for Nasri's transfer to go ahead.
And the 21-year-old's agent, Jean-Pierre Bernes, has explained that he expects Nasri to seal his move to Arsenal when he returns from his holidays.
"He is on his holidays. It (the transfer) will be made when he will be back, in about 10 days," said Bernes.
