Samir Nasri has been nominated for the 2011 PFA Player of the Year award.

The French midfielder has been in tremendous form for Arsène Wenger’s side this season, scoring 14 goals in 33 starts.

Samir began the campaign superbly and his two penalties during extra time in the Carling Cup against Tottenham won Arsenal the tie. He was named the PFA Fans' Player of the Month for October after three goals in five appearances and ended the year with two wonderful solo efforts against Fulham.

Samir was again named the PFA Fans' Player of the Month for January and set up Andrey Arshavin’s 83rd-minute winner against Barcelona on an historic night at Emirates in February.

PFA Chief Executive Gordon Taylor said: "He [Nasri] has scored some wonderful, individual goals and his skill and ability to create openings almost from nothing make him quite special. As Arsène Wenger says, there is even more to come from him.

"He seems to have relished the extra responsibility placed upon him when Cesc Fabregas has not been fit. He’s a similar player to Cesc, and revels in a central role where he has become Arsenal’s main man.”

Nasri, along with team-mate Jack Wilshere, is also nominated for the Young Player of the Year award.
