Poll: Were Arsenal right to sell Samir Nasri to City?

Should Wenger have kept the French midfielder, or let him go?

So Samir Nasri is finally set to complete his move to Manchester City to Arsenal.

The move has been in the making for a while, but have the Gunners shown weakness or common sense?

With just one year left on his current deal and City offering double what the Gunners were, there is no doubt he would have left for nothing at the end of the season so for the north London side to gain �22million seems good business?

Why would you want to keep an unhappy player who was going to leave you regardless?

You may also want to watch:

His departure has left a massive hole, already sizeable by the sale of Cesc Fabregas. Are Aaron Ramsey and Jack Wilshere ready to fill the void? Obviously Arsene Wenger will be looking for reinforcements, but time is running out and he is notorious for not paying over the odds.

You could argue he has been weak, especially selling to a rival who will be battling Arsenal for a Champions League place.
