Samir Nasri hits out at ‘disrespectful’ Arsenal fans following chants

The French midfielder, who has been linked with a move to Manchester City before the end of the summer transfer window, believes supporters were wrong to vent their anger

Samir Nasri has taken to Twitter to hit out at Arsenal fans who were taunting him during the weekend draw at Newcastle.

The Frenchman, who was not a part of the squad that travelled to St James' Park, has been heavily linked with a move to Manchester City, and supporters expressed their anger about his potential transfer during the goalless draw.

Nasri said via Twitter: “I heard what the fans were singing about me on Saturday and it is really disrespectful because I'm still a [sic] Arsenal player.”

The midfielder's contract is due to expire at the end of this season and his reluctance to sign a new deal has seen him linked with moves all summer, with City apparently prepared to spend £20 million to take him to the Etihad Stadium.
