West Ham fans have been calling for Samir Nasri to be released once his contract expires this summer.
Nasri joined West Ham on a free transfer in January for a reported weekly wage of £80,000-a-week, making the midfielder one of the highest earning players at the club.
The France international is a supremely talented player having starred at both Arsenal and Manchester City in the past.
Unfortunately for the Hammers though, Nasri’s time at the London Stadium has been hampered by injuries after originally making a bright start
The former Manchester City man had to withdraw from the Chelsea game on Monday due to an injury sustained when warming up, leading to Hammers fans pondering his future at the club.
Fans on Twitter weighed up whether his wages and injuries justified keeping him on the books at the club and many agreed that it would be best to release Nasri once his current deal comes to an end.
Here’s what West Ham fans have been saying on Twitter…
Release. We have too many injury prone players. This is where we go wrong and why no other clubs wanted him

Unfortunately, release him. Alot of money in wages that could be spent on a younger, creative midfielder who’s not injury prone.

Just another in a long line. Get rid. Waste of time and money.

Release, my opinion was different b4 plagued with injury again, we can’t pay wages to keep bench warm

At this moment in time release him. No doubting the quality but his injuries are a worry. Maybe on a pay as you play.
If he can get himself fit for the rest of the season then we can reconsider.

Gutted but release him. We need young hungry players and I’m sure we have plenty in our academy. They need to play the last few games. Johnson played one game, done alright and not seen again. Let the lad play!

Hasn’t played enough so has to be released
