Unsettled Arsenal midfielder Samir Nasri has decided to stay at the Emirates for one more season.
The French international’s future with the Gunners has been clouded with uncertainty after indicating his desire to leave the club this summer and his reluctance to sign a new contract.
The 24-year-old has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester City, with Manchester United and Chelsea also in the race for his signature.
But now according to The Daily Star newspaper, Nasri has conceded he will remain at the Emirates for one more season.
Gunners boss Arsene Wenger has made it clear he is determined to keep the Frenchman at the club for one more season even if it risks losing the midfielder for free when his contract runs out next year.
But despite having successfully kept Nasri at the Emirates, Wenger could do nothing to prevent captain Cesc Fabregas from joining Barcelona.
The Catalan giants admitted they still hope to secure the signing of the Spaniard even after spending €26million on Alexis Sanchez.
The saga surrounding the Fabregas’ future is expected to be decided by the end of this week.
