Samir Nasri is on the cusp of returning to the Premier League with West Ham amid reports the French midfielder underwent a medical on Monday morning.
The Evening Standard claim that Nasri has agreed a six-month, £80,000-a-week deal with the Hammers that will be signed should he come through his tests unscathed.
The 31-year-old is a free agent currently serving an 18-month drugs ban which was incurred due to a fateful, extracurricular, intravenous trip to ‘The Drip Doctors’ in Los Angeles back in December 2016 – otherwise known as the greatest night in Twitter history.
The ban is set to expire this December, freeing up Nasri – a former Premier League winner under Manuel Pellegrini at Man City – to restart his competitive career.
With Andriy Yarmolenko out for the long-term, the Hammers are looking for an available replacement – though a fairly expensive, short-term whirl on a banned IV aficionado is still a very West Ham move.
