French attacker Samir Nasri has said that he is fighting for his West Ham United future during the final seven games of the campaign. The 31-year-old joined the Hammers on a free transfer in January after his drugs ban was rescinded but he has since struggled to earn a regular run in the team due to a calf problem.

Still, he has managed six appearances for the east London outfit where he has provided a couple of assists against Arsenal and Huddersfield Town respectively. Speaking to London Evening Standard, Nasri has now indicated that he has no idea regarding his future with the Hammers and everything could depend on the final seven games where he needs to avoid any fitness concerns.

He said: "I don't know about my future. The most important thing for me was to come back, which I did in January. Then I got an injury because I wasn't used to playing week in week out when I have been out of the game for so long. Now the manager takes his time with me. I have seven games left and I just want to play free of injury and then we will sit down and see what is next."

With the talent at disposal, “the Hammers face a no-brainer situation with regards to signing Nasri on an extended contract beyond the summer but there are still concerns whether he can remain unscathed after going through an entire year without playing football after the drugs ban. Meanwhile, West Ham returned to winning ways at the weekend following their sublime comeback “triumph over Huddersfield Town at the London Stadium.

The Hammers found themselves trailing by a 3-1 scoreline shortly after the hour mark but they made a stellar comeback with three goals during the final 15 minutes. Javier Hernandez starred for them with a late brace.
