According to The Sun, Manchester City’s Samir Nasri is in talks over a switch to Besiktas.

The report claims that talks have been ongoing for a few hours now as the Turkish side want to take the France international on loan with a view to a permanent deal.

Nasri arrived in the Premier Leage with Arsenal and after impressing at the Gunners, he controversially moved to City in a deal which infuriated the Gunners supporters.

The Frenchman’s risky switch has arguably worked out well for Nasri, considering he has since lifted the Premier League title twice while also claiming a League Cup success.

But following the arrival of new boss Pep Guardiola, it appears his time at the Etihad Stadium is drawing to a close as a clash in styles has no doubt hindered his chances of regular first-team action.

The 29-year-old’s absence from City’s Champions League squad has seemingly been the deciding factor, and now Nasri could be heading to Besiktas with talks ongoing for the winger.

The report in The Sun goes on to add that Inter Milan among other Italian clubs have enquired about the player this summer, but Roberto Mancini’s sacking as manager of the Serie A outfit ultimately halted proceedings.

Nasri has made 170 appearances for City in all competitions, scoring 26 goals in the process.
