Nasri set for Serie A switch

Samir Nasri is set to move to Italy this summer from Manchester City after his season-long loan spell at Sevilla came to an end, say reports.

The 30-year-old’s agent said the midfielder ‘likes Roma’s project’ – where sporting director Monchi is now in place – while Estadio Deportivo had also suggested he could move to Milan this summer.

The report in the Seville-based paper had said Nasri ‘dug his own grave’ at Los Rojiblancos while Fenerbahce and Galatasaray had also been linked.

“The player is still owned by Manchester City and we are evaluating several issues,” agent Alain Migliaccio told Romanews.eu.

“There is the possibility of a transfer to China. With regards to Italy, there are two clubs interested who we have already talked to. They are top level teams.

“Monchi wanted him at Sevilla and knows him well. A city and a squad like Roma could certainly be very interesting for Nasri. That’s where the motivation comes from.

“Monchi knows what he wants and where he wants to go. He already has the project in mind: he sold important players, but has the right alternatives in his pocket.

“We want to understand the structure of the Roma option and work out if Samir can really fit into the Roma project. As far as we’re concerned, we want to evaluate the situation well and understand the project.

“Nasri really likes the city, but a move to Rome would also depend on who is leaving from the midfield: Monchi is evaluating it.

“Samir can work in the centre as well as going wide. There will certainly be surprises and there are many things to be evaluated.”
