The Frenchman made his return from an 18-month doping ban with a man-of-the-match performance against Birmingham City on Saturday.Nasri has played for Manchester City and Arsenal – the Hammers opponents this weekend – and he thinks the club can reach the upper echelon of Premier League clubs.”You choose a club and a project because of the ambition, and I think that West Ham has everything to be one of the biggest clubs,” he said. “This team has a lot of quality which has the potential to finish high up the league.”Just look at some of the names the club has brought in. Felipe Anderson was the new wonderkid when he signed for Lazio, and two or three years ago they were talking about a move to Manchester United.”Jack Wilshere, I know him from when he first came in at Arsenal. He was a wonderkid and he is a special player.”[Andriy] Yarmolenko – same thing. Chicharito – same thing. This squad is full of talent and has the right ingredients for this team to go really high.” About the authorFreddie TaylorShare the loveHave your say
