Nasri’s West Ham move could break down over fitness concerns

Samir Nasri’s potential move to West Ham may be off after the club raised concerns over the player’s fitness.

The former Arsenal and Manchester City midfielder has been in negotiations with the Hammers over an £80,000-a-week short-term deal that would see the 31-year-old reunited with former City boss Manuel Pellegrini at The London Stadium.

The Mirror reports that Nasri, currently serving an 18-month doping ban, undertook a medical with the East London outfit, but concerns have been raised regarding his condition.

West Ham have seen their midfield depleted by injuries to several players including the likes of Jack Wilshere and Manuel Lanzini and are keen to avoid having a another expensive acquisition unfit to play.

Boss Pellegrini has been concerned over his squad’s lack of depth and has been keen to address this in the January window.

Nasri’s ban ends on December 31st and the Frenchman can train with The Hammers until then in a bid to prove his fitness.
