West Ham signed Samir Nasri on a short-term contract in January 2019. The Frenchman impressed in spurts for the Hammers, before being released in the summer of 2019.

The 41-capped France international linked up with Vincent Kompany’s Anderlecht having left West Ham. But injuries have plagued his time with the Belgian outfit.

But his career has clearly been in decline over the past two or three years.

If he had managed to stay fit during his short time with West Ham, he might just have been offered a new deal last summer.

And who knows? The Frenchman might have been a real success in east London.

Some Hammers fans took to Twitter yesterday, and reminisced about Nasri:


Nobody knows what would have happened, had Nasri stayed at West Ham. Perhaps it was the right decision not offering him a new deal, considering his continued problems with injury.

The Frenchman’s stay at West Ham was underwhelming on the whole. But there were odd glimpses of magic.

When is all said and done, however, Nasri can be proud of what he has achieved during his career.

Not many players can say they won two Premier League titles.
