Injury Hit West Ham Linked With Shock Move for Former Premier League Winner in January

West Ham are considering a shock move for former Arsenal and Manchester City midfielder Samir Nasri in the January transfer window, after the Frenchman's drugs-ban ended last week. 

The former Premier League title winner is a free agent at the moment and is available to play once more after serving an 18-month suspension for contravening doping laws in 2016.

With the 31-year-old looking for a new club, Mirror Football have reported that West Ham have expressed an interest in the former France international to provide further back-up to a squad that has been ravaged by injuries this season.

Manuel Pellegrini's side will be without summer signing Andriy Yarmolenko for the season after the Ukrainian suffered an Achilles injury, whilst the likes of Manuel Lanzini, Carlos Sanchez and Jack Wilshere have all had disrupted campaigns.  

Nasri won the Premier League twice during his time at the Etihad Stadium with City, and played under the current Hammers boss when the Chilean replaced Roberto Mancini as manager.

The Frenchman praised Pellegrini's style of coaching and was an instrumental part of the Manchester City side that won the league in 2013/2014, scoring the opening goal in the title-clinching 2-0 win over West Ham.

After Pellegrini's departure, Nasri fell out of favour at the Etihad and after spending six seasons in Manchester, Nasri left the side permanently in 2017 and joined Turkish Super Lig side Antalyaspor. However, the midfielder made just eight appearances for the side before leaving at the end of the season, but is now seemingly linked with a move back to English football.
