Manchester City's move for Samir Nasri got a little more complicated today as it appears his current manager, Arsene Wenger, could very well cup tie the want-away midfielder on Thursday. For those of you that may not know, if Nasri plays against Udinese in Arsenal's upcoming Champions League qualifier he will be ineligible to play for a different team in the competition.
His ability to help the Citizens in UEFA's premier competition is one of the key components to signing the player. Truthfully what good would he be to the club if he could not play in their biggest competition?
However, it is all still speculative and he could very well be moved on by then for all we know. With that in consideration, Arsenal's midfield is dangerously thin. Youngsters can only hold down the fort for so long until it is necessary to have some experienced players to pull the load and keep the team's composure.
With Nasri set to make his exit, Arsene Wenger is going to have to splash some cash whether he wants to or not. That said, here is a list of some of the top players that could possibly replace Nasri at the Emirates.
