Arsene Wenger says he is hopeful of retaining the services of Man City target Samir Nasri.

Arsene Wenger has said he is hoping to hang on to Samir Nasri following Cesc Fabregas's departure for Spain.

The 24-year-old has refused an offer from Wenger to extend his current contract as he considers a move to Man City, where he could earn double his London wage.

Speaking at a press conference this morning, Wenger told reporters: "Ideally I want Samir Nasri to stay, but as much as we were in a strong position on the contract side with Cesc, the situation is a bit different, but hopefully we can sort the situation out."

Wenger refused to guess his chances of keeping Nasri, conceding: "It's very difficult to answer that question in an honest way."

Nasri resumed training this morning as the side prepares for its Champions League game with Udinese tomorrow.
