The 20-year-old has established himself as one of the hottest prospects in Europe over the past few seasons and has been heavily linked with the Gunners in recent weeks.

Marseille-based newspaper La Provence reported last week that Nasri was on the verge of agreeing a ₤12.5 million move to the Emirates, and French daily L’Equipe has claimed the playmaker will travel to London to undergo a medical and agree personal terms.

The Algerian-descended playmaker only recently signed a new contract designed to keep him at Stade Velodrome until 2012, but it has since emerged the deal includes a release clause set at around ₤12 million.

Nasri is expected to replace the unsettled Aleksandr Hleb, who has received strong interest from Inter Milan and has recently been linked with Barcelona.

Gunners boss Arsene Wenger is likely to install Nasri on either flank, continuing his tradition of converting natural playmakers into wide midfielders, as he has done with the likes of Hleb, Tomas Rosicky and Robert Pires.

Nasri is expected to arrive in London in the morning, and will meet with Arsenal officials to agree personal terms before undergoing a medical at Shenley.

He will then be taken on a tour of the Emirates Stadium, and have his picture taken for the club’s official website, before flying out around 7:30pm to hook up with France national team in Clairefontaine for their pre-EURO 2008 training camp.
