Nasri in talks with Kompany's Anderlecht

Released West Ham midfielder Samir Nasri is in talks with Vincent Kompany's Anderlecht.

The France midfielder, 32, becomes a free agent next month when his short-term West Ham contract expires.

Nasri, who previously received an 18-month ban from football for doping offences, has not been offered a new deal from the Hammers as he plots his next move.

But the 33-year-old Kompany, who took over as player-manager of Anderlecht last month, has already been in contact with the ex-Arsenal midfielder, says The Sun.

And the centre-back has offered him the chance to join the Brussels outfit.

Nasri spent five seasons alongside Kompany at the Etihad, helping City win two Premier League titles and a League Cup, before leaving for Sevilla in 2016.
