Samir Nasri was today on the brink of finally joining Manchester City after Arsenal confirmed they had agreed terms with their Barclays Premier League rivals.

Nasri, who has been linked with City all summer, was given permission to travel to Manchester for a medical and to miss the Gunners' crucial Champions League play-off second leg at Udinese.



Arsenal said in a statement on their official website, www.arsenal.com: "Arsenal can confirm that they have agreed terms for Samir Nasri to move to Manchester City.



"The 24-year-old midfielder, who has spent three years with the Gunners, has been omitted from Arsenal's squad which flies to Udinese this afternoon and instead will travel north for a medical.



"The move will be subject to Nasri passing a medical and formal registration processes."
