Leroy Sane's move to Manchester City is likely to spell the end of at least one winger's career at Eastlands this summer.
Should Mauricio Pochettino offer the Frenchman an escape route to Tottenham Hotspur?
He is an unpopular figure among Tottenham fans not only because of his three-year spell at North London rivals Arsenal, but because he was often the scourge of Tottenham.
On his Manchester City debut, he set up three and scored one in a 5-1 away win at White Hart Lane. The season before that, Nasri - then at Arsenal - scored four times in three North London derbies.
The 2010/11 campaign remains his best season in English football in the individual stakes, scoring 15 times in all competitions from left midfield.
It is a very decent return and one which Spurs fans would love to see from Erik Lamela, Son Heung-Min or Nacer Chadli, but the jury is still out on those three as far as productivity goes.
Nasri - now 29 - is getting on in years, but speed was never his strong suit. The aging process won't deprive him of his dribbling, agility, technique or goalscoring prowess for a while yet.
Like Arsene Wenger, Pochettino is a fantastic man manager and the Argentine might be the man to help the France international rediscover his golden touch.
Injury limited him to only 12 Premier League outings last term, but a fit and happy Nasri is a huge asset to any club with eyes on winning the title - and he's won it twice.
His Arsenal history is unlikely to make him snub a switch to Tottenham. After all. he might be less liked on the red half of the North London divide given his acrimonious departure in 2011, much like how William Gallas was before he joined Spurs in 2010 and spent three years at the Lane.
With his contract running until 2019, he will command a sizeable transfer fee, but City might be just as happy to ship him out as Tottenham should be to bring him in.
