West Ham United playmaker Samir Nasri is reportedly ‘unlikely’ to extend his stay at the club beyond the summer.
football.london understands the Frenchman will sit down with manager Manuel Pellegrini this week to discuss things, before featuring against Watford in their final game of the season.
Three separate calf injuries have limited Nasri to just six appearances for the club having only signed on a short-term basis in January.
The move was seen as a risk at the time due to his prolonged period away from football as a result of his UEFA ban for breaking WADA rules (BBC Sport), and the gamble has not paid off.
SDNA reported recently that Greek giants Olympiakos are poised to move for the former Arsenal and Manchester City ace if he does depart the London Stadium.
Nasri’s move to West Ham has been a major disappointment.
It was always going to be a risk signing a player who had been out of the game for 18 months.
He simply has not been able to shake off that troublesome calf problem, and it would make sense for the Hammers to seek a younger, more reliable replacement this summer.
Manuel Lanzini is back in the picture now after his own injury problems, and they also have Felipe Anderson.
With forgotten man Andriy Yarmolenko to return ahead of 2019/20, West Ham will surely be able to move on comfortably enough.
