Arsenal Football Club today announced they have agreed terms with Man City for the sale of Samir Nasri.

Arsene Wenger had “threatened” to use Samir Nasri in tomorrow`s CL qualifier in an attempt to hurry up Manchester City, and it appears to have worked as the two clubs have now come to an agreement subject to personal terms and a medical.

I`ve be very pro-sale of Nasri for quite sometime as 20 odd million pounds for a player who doesn`t want to be here and is in the last year of his contract is an extraordinary piece of business.

However it only becomes good business if that cash is immediately reinvested into the squad, and I`m just not sure that`s going to happen.

We have lost three first choice players this summer, two of them our most creative players (indeed in the 3 games so far this season we have looked completely devoid of ideas) without replacing any of them.

Wenger needs to act fast to replace these men or he will quickly find Arsenal fans asking for a new manager, and it pains me to say I could well be one of them.
