Well the reports are true in a sense but the contract will be finalized at the end of the season.
Wenger is, however, confident in the extension of Nasri’s contract, as he said that Nasri’s agent has already been approached and the process will be completed in the summers.
The reason for delay, Wenger, gave was the main focus being on the competitions at the moment. And he further added that there is one year still left in his current contract expiry.
Wenger regarding Nasri’s contract said:
“We’ll sort that out during the summer. We have met his agent already but we’ll finish the job in the summer.
[At the moment] we focus on the competition. Anyway, there is still one year to go [on Nasri’s contract] in the summer.
You can reproach me that I’m always confident.”
Wenger has also completely ruled out the signing of Eden Hazard from Lille in January. Eden Hazard has been heavily linked with a move to Arsenal these past few weeks. The player himself came out saying that he would love to play for Arsenal as young players are encouraged there.
Arsene, however, has ruled it out by saying that the offensive department already has many players. He added that players like JET and Vela are not finding first team action and are being loaned out due to the same reasons.
However, Wenger didn’t rule out signing him ever. He said that it will depend on the situation at the end of the season.
Wenger regarding Hazard said:
“In the offensive department we have many players. If I give Carlos Vela and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas out on loan it is because we have what it takes.
At the end of the season we’ll have a look at the situation but at the moment it’s completely ruled out.”
