Samir Nasri has spent the majority of his professional football career outside of his native France. As a matter of fact, he has not played for another French team professionally since leaving Marseille for Arsenal in 2008. The Gunners paid around £12m for Samir Nasri.
French international Samir Nasri played for several local teams at an early age before he joined hometown club Marseille at the age of nine. He was at Marseille for almost a decade before he got the chance to play for the first team and he grabbed it with both hands.
