Premiership duo keen on Marseille youngster

Nasri have been linked with moves to Italian giants Inter and Arsenal earlier this year.

Nasri told “Chairman Pape Diouf told me Manchester City were interested in me. I love the English mentality.

“Tottenham are a big club, they nearly reached the Champions League last season. They play beautiful football.

“But my agent didn’t tell me about it, because I have to stay focused on the pitch.”

“I have been playing with the pros since 3 years now, and I know everybody. I feel very comfortable because I have kept a part of innocence.

“If the club was qualified in Europe every year, I could remain here all my career. A career like (Paolo) Maldini, playing for a single club, would be fantastic.

“I represent the immigration kids. People say I show a good image, that makes me happy. I come from the suburbs and I try to act as an example. People can achieve great things, thanks to hard work.”
