Even the ever-coy Wenger has admitted that “There’s a good chance of it (Nasri’s signing) coming to pass, and if it does it will be before the European Championships.” http://www.skysports.com/story/0,19528,11670_3609039,00.html
Most people except the signing to be made in the next three days, but Wenger says that could be up to two weeks. Either way, he will sign.
Most Gooners think that Samir will a Hleb replacement. In the attacking midfield role yes, in the right winger role no. There is no way that Wenger would deny Walcott a well deserved starting place on the right wing. I’m guessing confidently that we will play 4-5-1 next season, with Nasri in the “playmaker” role.
This will be next year’s team:
Bench: Fabianski, Song, Traore, Denilson, Diaby, Vela, Bendtner
I will make further comments when we make our next signing, which will hopefully be a holding midfielder.
Hleb will probably also be sold this week, and his price will cover for Nasri’s signing, leaving money for big two more big signings.
