The Daily Star says the France internationals have just a year left on their contracts with Nasri demanding more than £6m a year to sign a new one - an increase of over 100 per cent which would see him earn more than skipper Cesc Fabregas.
Clichy, who is on £2.5m, wants Arsenal to match the £4m he can get at Liverpool but an Arsenal source said: "We are not going to be held to ransom. If they think they can get that sort of money elsewhere, good luck to them.
Talks have rumbled on for weeks and despite Arsene Wenger speaking to Nasri and his representatives again recently, a compromise looks no closer.
"It may be Clichy will leave," added the source.
