Two-time Man City Premier League victor undergoes West Ham medical

But the former France global has encountered a troubled career since, having been banned for 18 months by UEFA for doping.

Nasri was banned from football for breaching World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) rules in 2016 after he visited an intravenous treatment centre in Los Angeles, but he can play again from January 1.

Samir Nasri is poised to be given a controversial route back into the Premier League by West Ham.

It was alleged Nasri received 500 millilitres of hydration in the form of sterile water containing micronutrients while on holiday in the U.S. during a time when he was playing for Sevilla, on load from Manchester City.

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.

Amazon to split second HQ between New York, Virginia
Employees at the Seattle headquarters will be given the option to stay there, or relocate to the new HQ2, Amazon said past year . Amazon's decision will likely lead to more foreign visitors, fuel more worldwide flights and potentially stimulate more exports.

It is understood that West Ham will bow to wage demands of £80,000 a week, or £5m a year, by Nasri.

Reports have suggested that the Hammers hold an interest in Nasri, who is available on a free transfer with his doping ban due to end at the end of 2018.

Everton manager Marco Silva had discussed a move for the player with his backroom staff but Nasri did not fit the age profile of players that the Merseyside club want to buy.

Nasri will sign a short-term contract with the London club, having last played a competitive match in November 2017 with Antalyaspor in the Turkish Super Lig.
