Samir Nasri will find out whether he has a West Ham future this week, according to The London Evening Standard. West Ham have their doubts about Nasri, who has had multiple fitness concerns since his January move to East London.
His future is up in the air at the moment but Nasri will receive a definitive answer about whether he features in Manuel Pellegrini’s plans before the end of the week.
Samir Nasri at West Ham
Nasri joined West Ham in January after training with the first-team squad for a couple of months. The Frenchman had just completed an 18-month doping ban but Pellegrini was impressed with how he got himself fit in a short period of time.
However, since making his debut against Birmingham City in the FA Cup, the 31-year-old has only managed five more appearances in claret and blue.
Nasri has picked up numerous different muscle injuries and the club now have reservations about his fitness. But his form when he is on the pitch presents a dilemma.
The ex-Arsenal and Manchester City midfielder has impressed in his six games. In his last outing (against Huddersfield Town in mid-March), Nasri inspired a comeback win for the Hammers.
But he picked up a calf injury warming up against Chelsea and has not featured since. He was declared fit for last weekend but not named in the matchday squad to face Southampton.
Ahead of the final game against Watford next Sunday, Nasri and Pellegrini will meet to hold showdown talks on his future.
