West Ham are closing in on the signing of Samir Nasri on a short-term deal worth a reported £80,000 per week with the midfielder set to undergo a medical.

The 31-year-old was originally handed a six-month ban for the offence in February but it was later extended to 18-months following an appeal, although it was backdated until July 1, 2017.

Former Manchester City and Arsenal playmaker Samir Nasri is on the verge of a return to the Premier League.

Nasri has been a free agent since leaving Turkish side Antalyaspor in January, having made just eight appearances for the Super Lig outfit.

Ice Cube takes aim at Trump with ‘Arrest the President’
Rap legend Ice Cube on Friday released a new politically charged song with President Donald Trump squarely in the crosshairs. On the track's chorus, you can hear Ice Cube pleading to arrest the president because they got the evidence.

Nasri could add some inventive spark to West Ham's midfield, but his fitness levels could be an issue given the amount of time he has gone without playing professional football.

A month later he was banned, initially for six months, for using an intravenous drip treatment that contravened World Anti-Doping Agency (Wada) rules, leading to a Spanish Anti-Doping investigation.

His last competitive appearance came for Antalyaspor on November 26 a year ago.

The 31-year-old is now serving a doping ban, but with that up in December of this year, he's keen on a quick return to football and is undergoing a medical at West Ham today, the London Evening Standard reports.
