Former France international Samir Nasri reportedly wants to seal a permanent move away from Manchester City, according to The Sun.
The Premier League side, who thrashed West Bromwich Albion 4-0 on Saturday to continue leading the top-flight table, level on points with Arsenal and Liverpool, have loaned the central midfielder to Sevilla for the 2016/17 season.
The 29-year-old, who earned 41 international caps for his country before retiring in 2014, has scored three goals and provided one assist in nine appearances in all competitions for the La Liga outfit so far this season.
Nasri, who joined the Citizens from Premier League rivals Arsenal back in August 2011 following his £25m switch, is set to hold talks with City boss Pep Guardiola in January over his future at the Etihad Stadium.
Despite Sevilla understood not to have an option to buy the Frenchman, Nasri is tipped to be surplus to requirements at City, with the Citizens set to ask for around £12m for the midfielder, who still has two years remaining on his current contract.
