West Ham United have snapped up playmaker Samir Nasri.

Samir Nasri of West Ham United warms up ahead of the FA Cup Third Round match between West Ham United and Birmingham City at The London Stadium on January 5, 2019 in London, United Kingdom.

West Ham United have made just the one signing so far in the January transfer window, bringing in Samir Nasri on a free transfer after a ban from the game.

The Hammers took Nasri in for training back in November, and gave him time to get up to full fitness before handing him a deal until the end of the season.

Having worked with boss Manuel Pellegrini at Manchester City, their reunion is far from a surprise, but his superb display in the 1-0 win over Arsenal on Saturday did shock many after so long out of the game.

 

The Frenchman's ban also means that he has been out of FIFA 19 so far, but his move to West Ham means that he has been added back into the game as of the latest squad update.

Hammers fans will be keen to utilise Nasri in FIFA 19, and they may be interested to know some of his attributes as the playmaker returns to FIFA for the first time since January 29th, 2018.

Firstly, Nasri's overall is set at 79; three short of the overall he came into FIFA 18 with, but just one short of his final rating at Antalyaspor almost a year ago.

He comes in at the same overall rating as Jack Wilshere and better than Robert Snodgrass, but still some way short of Manuel Lanzini and Felipe Anderson in terms of creative midfield players at West Ham.

Nasri has sadly received downgrades in almost every key area; crossing, finishing, passing, volleys, dribbling, ball control, sprint speed, acceleration, stamina, strength, vision, the list goes on.

EA clearly feel that Nasri will be a worse player for his absence from the game, but based on Saturday's performance against Arsenal, it may not be long before his ratings increase steadily again.
