Wenger willing to allow Nasri to leave on a free

14th July 2011 - Chad Lazarus

Arsenal football manager Arsene Wenger has confessed that he is open to the idea of keeping Samir Nasri this summer before losing him on a free transfer in a year.

Speculation has been mounting over Nasri's future, as the midfielder is yet to sign a new contract and has been linked with a transfer to Chelsea and Manchester United.

Commenting, Wenger said: "I'm willing to keep him for another year, even if it means we risk losing him for nothing in a year's time. I think the board agrees with me as it is a technical decision."

Wenger also stated that the club's goal is to win the Premier League and good players are needed to do so.

Arsenal recently reached an agreement with Lille for the signature of Ivorian striker Gervinho, who helped to lead the club to the French title last year.
