"For me, Arsenal are the ideal club when you see the number of players who have gone on to develop there and have proved themselves there," he said.
"It is important to go to a stable club, where there is no revolving door.
"At Arsenal, Arsene Wenger has brought through players, he is French, the team is young, and we know the quality of the atmosphere there. For me it was the wisest choice.
"I like their game and the culture of Arsenal's football makes me dream. Last season, I got so excited watching all their matches.
"It is this culture, this way of playing, which in my opinion represents the best things about football."
Nasri is willing to assume a position on the flank, with Wenger always happy to see his wingers drift into the middle.
"I have chatted to Arsene Wenger and I am going to play on the flank since it is there where the playmakers are, doubling up as wingers," he added in an interview with French daily L'Equipe.
"That system suits me. I have played there for four years in the France youth team and also in the senior team.
"The left or the right, it doesn't matter to me."
