Nasri, who played 41 times for France between 2007 and 2013, is the first big name sign for Kompany who ended his 10-year stay in Manchester City at the end of last season to take his first step in management.
He spent six seasons alongside Kompany in City and won two Premier League titles and the League Cup.
Nasri also played for Marseille, Arsenal, Sevilla and Antalyaspor, but only managed to play six games for West Ham last season when he struggled after an 18-month ban on doping.
