Samir Nasri left West Ham on a free transfer in the summer to link up with Belgian outfit Anderlecht.

The former France international joined the Hammers in January 2019 on a short-term deal. Injuries severely hindered his progress at the London Stadium, however.

Nasri made just six appearances in all competitions for West Ham, racking up two assists in the process.

Unfortunately for the Hammers fans, they never really got to see the best of the 32-year-old.

How has he fared in Belgium since leaving West Ham though?

Nasri has made a decent start to life with Anderlecht.

The experienced attacking midfielder has made six appearances for the Jupiler League outfit, and has already notched two goals.


He has failed to have too much of an impact for the Belgian side, however.

Anderlecht currently sit fourth from bottom in the table, having taken just five points from their opening eight league games.

Nasri has great talent, and on his day, he is capable of winning matches for whichever team he is playing for.

And despite the Frenchman’s fine start from a personal perspective, he will be desperate for his team to start climbing the table sooner rather than later.

West Ham fans will be pleased to see Nasri resurrect his career in Belgium. And with Manuel Lanzini ruled out for around a month, the Hammers could really have done with someone like the former Arsenal and Manchester City man.
