Wenger: "Nasri has a chance to face Barcelona"

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger admits that midfielder Samir Nasri does have a “chance” of playing against Barcelona in the Champions League next Wednesday.

The 23-year-old sustained a hamstring injury during the FA Cup win over Huddersfield last month, with Wenger suggesting that Nasri wouldn’t be fit for Wednesday’s clash. However, the former Marseille man said on Twitter that he’s now begun training again and could be back sooner rather than later.

“I wouldn’t say ‘no chance’. There is a chance,” Wenger told reporters at his post-match press conference after the win against Wolves.

Nasri, of course, has been at the center of much of Arsenal’s success this year, scoring fabulous goals against Fulham and Manchester City. He’s been scoring goals at a tremendous rate and providing smooth passing interchanges with Cesc Fabregas, Robin van Persie, and Theo Walcott in the Gunners’ best attacking four.

Gooners will be hopeful that Nasri can make the substitutes bench against Barcelona, bolstering Arsene Wenger’s attacking options in the squad.
