The French midfield ace, 20, should complete a £13million switch from Marseille within days after reportedly agreeing a five-year contract.
Diouf said: "There is an agreement between Arsenal and Marseille but Nasri is not officially an Arsenal player.
"He must first complete the medical."
Nasri's imminent arrival follows Arsenal's £5million purchase of Cardiff midfielder Aaron Ramsey, 17.
