Chelsea have made a late move to wreck Manchester City's hopes of signing Arsenal star Samir Nasri.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea have launched a late bid to scupper Manchester City's £19million move for Nasri.

The Arsenal midfielder has been at the centre of a three-way battle for his signature between Barclays Premier League giants Chelsea, City and Manchester United.

City were confident that they had won the race, with the deal close to completion.

But Chelsea are now bidding to tempt the Frenchman to make the move across London.
