Manchester United manager Alex Ferguson is set to enrage Arsenal fans by trying to sign Samir Nasri if he decides to move this summer. 

According to this report, French paper L'Equipe has indicated that Samir Nasri has become frustrated of Arsenal's trophy drought at the Emirates. 

The 23-year-old was signed from Marseille in 2008, and has been instrumental in Arsenal's campaign over the years, and has now entered the final year of his contract. 

Italian giants Inter Milan and AC Milan have both shown interest in the Frenchman with Barcelona and Real Madrid also thought to be keen admirers.

Should Nasri plan to leave, Arsene Wenger would be better off selling him to the Italian or Spanish clubs rather than to a direct competitor in the Premier League.

Another report suggests that Arsene Wenger has already identified Nasri's replacement, 18-year old Bundesliga star Mario Gotze. 

Gotze has scored six goals and assisted 15 for newly crowned Bundesliga champions Borussia Dortmund, and is thought to be one of the hottest properties in Europe. 

Arsenal would have to cough up £25million to sign the German and it could be a headache for Arsene Wenger, who is already under pressure to make changes to his squad for next season.
