Manuel Pellegrini is keen to reunite with the Frenchman to add creativity to his side after long-term injuries to Manuel Lanzini and more recently summer signing Andriy Yarmolenko.

The move would no doubt be a risk for the Chilean chief as Nasri has been out of the game for a while and is lacking match fitness.

Nonetheless, Pellegrini is keen for the move to happen and SunSport reported that Nasri is set to sign an £80k-a-week contract with the claret and blue outfit.

The club have said that they are unwilling to dish out a long-term contracts due to their recent injury struggles with some of their players.

Andy Carroll is currently on a £100k-a-week deal and his time with the club has largely been spent on the sidelines.

While summer recruit Jack Wilshere has only made four appearances so far this term due to an ongoing ankle injury

Therefore, West Ham deal-makers will only give Nasri a six month contract at most.

Another problem with the former Sevilla man, who won the Premier League under Pellegrini in 2014, is his fitness.

He is reportedly working hard to get back into shape to be ready to play in the New Year but insiders have said he still needs to lose up to five kilos to be ready to play.

And Pellegrini is hoping the player can meet that target and be ready to rediscover his golden touch under him.

Speaking to the Times last week, Pellegrini said: “Samir Nasri is a very technical player who always made a difference.

“He was an important player not only for me and City but also for Arsenal.

“What we need is to recover the real Samir Nasri. If he has no injuries until January 1, when he can play, he can be fit.”

Pellegrini is keen on reuniting with Nasri to fill the void of sidelined Lanzini and Yarmolenko
