Samir Nasri's Career Hits All-Time Low On Transfer Deadline Day
Remember when Manchester City managed to strike a cracking deal with Arsenal for Samir Nasri, beating several clubs to the Frenchman's signature in the process?
It was one of the transfers of the 2011 transfer window, but seven years after spending £25 million on the midfielder, Nasri's career has hit a shocking new low on transfer deadline day.
The 30-year-old only played for the club eight times after signing from Manchester City for a reported €3.5 million last year.
Nasri is now a free agent after playing just a handful of games for the Turkish Super Lig outfit, with rumours of a potential move to the Premier League swirling around on social media.
But would he be able to do a job in England's top flight?

Last week, Tutto Mercato web in Italy, via MCFC Watch, reported that West Ham are looking into the possibility of giving Nasri a swift return to the Premier League.
For some time Samir Nasri was one of the best midfielders in the Premier League, being a first team player in both of Manchester City's two Premier League successes following a time at Arsenal.

In the last few years though, he has lost his way and ended up playing for Sevilla last season on loan, and then was sold to Turkish side Antalyaspor for a ridiculously low price for a player with so much natural talent.
Could Nasri still bring something to a Premier League side?
