Samir Nasri has been told that if he is to get a contract at West Ham he needs to prove that he is fit and ready to play.

Nasri is unavailable to play for any football side until new years day after being banned from the sport due to breaching World Anti-Doping Agency rules.

The ex-City man played under current Hammers boss Manuel Pelligrini back when the Frenchman played for the Premier League champions.

Despite Pelligrini’s determination to sign Nasri, the West Ham board are wary about offering a £80,000 a week contract to a player that is not match fit.

The Mirror are reporting that the midfielder still needs to lose up to five kilos for West Ham to take him on at the London Stadium.

Nasri first came to England in 2008 when he joined Arsenal, where he scored 18 goals in four seasons for the club. He then joined rivals Manchester City and went on to win the Premier League title.
