Samir Nasri is the PFA Fans' Player of the Month for October.

The Arsenal midfielder has pipped the likes of Rafael van der Vaart and Carlos Tevez to the award after a stellar month for Arsène Wenger's side.

Nasri scored three times in five appearances for Arsenal in October. He netted from the penalty spot against Birmingham and struck against Shakhtar Donetsk in the Champions League before breaking the deadlock in a 3-0 win over Manchester City.

Wenger recent hailed Nasri as a "dream player" who has made great strides since he move to Emirates Stadium in the summer of 2008.

"When you analyse Samir Nasri he has all the qualities and he now adds efficiency to his game and that makes him a great player," said Wenger.

"He scores goals, he gives assists, he can go one against one, he can pass - he is all that you dream to have as a football player.

"I am convinced Samir is a better player than when he came here because he is more efficient in creating chances. In the final balls, his vision has improved and he is quicker playing forward.

“At 23 years old, your career starts at the top level and he is becoming more efficient.

"I think he has become stronger. He is quite a complete player because he can run with the ball, he is quick and he is a clinical finisher now. I believe we have a great player in him now."
