Over the course of the weekend Chelsea have been linked with Samir Nasri. Nasri has just over a year left on his contract and Chelsea are being touted to make a move for the player if he doesn't sign an extension to his contract in the summer.

First of all Arsenal fans will think "rubbish!" and I have to be honest my initial reaction was the same as I couldn't see Arsenal willing to sell one of their best players but then I thought about the situation a little more and I just wonder what will happen.

Think about it, he is 23 and has the best years ahead of him. He must be frustrated at the lack of success at Arsenal and this season more than any as I really felt as though it was Arsenal's title to lose and have been proved right once again. Just the other day Fergie commented on the difference between Chelsea and Arsenal and could that also have an effect on the player?

Now looking in at Arsenal from the outside, Nasri is crying out to play through the middle or in behind the front man in the Cesc Fabregas role but doesn't get chances to play there. If I was Arsenal I would have cashed in on Fabregas and replaced him with Nasri as I believe he would be far more productive in that role than the Spaniard. Let's also be honest here, do you see Fabregas forcing Iniesta, Xavi and Busquets out of their roles in the side? No!. So you should have taken the money.

I guess alot about Nasri will come down to what happens to Fabregas and where Wenger sees the club moving forward. The rumour is that Arsenal would want at least £35m now for the player but if he doesn't sign a new deal he could be available for half that amount before he is free to talk to other clubs the following January.

For me, Nasri is the ideal player for Chelsea's midfield in our 4-3-3 formation. Has plenty of skill, can score goals and create and likes to get forward. Chelsea are looking for someone to eventually replace Frank Lampard, well it's my view Samir Nasri could be that man.
