Arsenal can confirm that the transfer of Samir Nasri to Manchester City has been completed for an undisclosed fee.
Nasri, 24, who joined Arsenal from Olympique Marseille in July 2008, made a total of 125 appearances for the Gunners and scored 27 goals.
Last season, Nasri scored 15 goals from his 46 appearances, including ten goals in the Premier League from his 30 appearances.
Arsène Wenger said: "Although we are all disappointed Samir has decided to leave us, we must respect his decision and also thank him for his fantastic contribution to Arsenal Football Club. Samir's on-pitch commitment to Arsenal was never in question and he always gave absolutely everything to the team.
"We will miss Samir, but if a player coming into the last year of their contract is determined to leave the Club and we also receive a competitive offer for them, this clearly influences our decision-making process."
Everyone at Arsenal Football Club would like to thank Samir for his contribution during his time at the Club.
