Manchester City directors are convinced they've landed Arsenal star Samir Nasri.

The Daily Mail says City believe they have captured Arsenal playmaker Nasri for £19million.

The deal is close to completion and will represent a significant victory for City with both Manchester United and Chelsea also keen on landing the Frenchman.

After the signing of Gael Clichy for £7m earlier this week, the Nasri move represents another serious loss for Arsenal to one of their Barclays Premier League rivals.
