Samir Nasri is hoping to make his loan spell at Sevilla permanent, according to an exclusive report by The Sun.
29-year-old Nasri has been in excellent form since hs swapped the Etihad for the Ramón Sánchez Pizjuán Stadium on transfer deadline day, with recent eye-catching performances against Dinamo Zagreb and Atlético Madrid. Sevilla do not have an option to purchase the former French international next summer, but want to raise enough money to make a permanent deal happen.
According to the story, City are keen to discuss the situation and have a good relationship with Sevilla after deals for Álvaro Negredo and Jesús Navas in 2013. With Samir loving life in Andalusia, there appears to be a desire on all sides to make a permanent deal happen.
The Sun reports that Nasri is expected in Manchester around Christmas time to discuss his future with Pep Guardiola, and it is thought that City would demand a fee of around £12 million for the midfielder, who earns £130,000-per-week.
