Atalanta remains keen on signing Arsenal man

Atalanta remains keen to add Nuno Tavares to their squad on loan in this transfer window.

The Italian club had a poor season, and they finished their domestic campaign without European football despite playing in the Champions League last term.

They want to return to Europe’s elite competition and believe a move for Tavares could help them achieve that quicker. They are now pushing to sign him, according to La Gazzetta Dello Sport.

The defender struggled to perform consistently as a backup to Kieran Tierney in the last campaign.

Arsenal even had to use Granit Xhaka in that position in some games after Tavares showed poor form in previous matches

He probably needs to spend some time away from the Emirates on loan to get his confidence back to performing well.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Tavares’ first season at the Emirates was not good enough, and he probably needs to spend some time away from Arsenal to iron out the errors in his game.

However, Atalanta has to guarantee that he will be picked regularly if he joins them before we sanction a transfer to Bergamo.

We also need to sign another backup to Tierney before allowing him to leave the Emirates.

  1. I actually rate Tavares but IN NO WAY as a defender, at all. I would keep him and play him as an attcking midfield,though as back up only, at present.

    I would never use Elneny at all, about whom I just fail to work out WHY such a poor player is even AT our club.

    1. Well Arteta gave him an extension and signed Lokonga while having BEN white and AMN and Azeez on the books that can all play there.

      Strange decision from MA I agree Jon. He is a good professional though.

    2. agree jon. I think he has his selected uses. Not the worst thing for him to stay in the squad.

  2. He needs coaching, like a lot of our player…Pepe is another example.

    Unfortunately he needs to go on loan to be coached.

  3. He kept Tierney out of the side for a spell.

    We have pre-season to let the highly paid manager and coaches work on his positioning in defense.

    Or aren’t they up to it? He is a great talent.

  4. How do these players go from excellent to no good in a very short span of time? Tavares looked excellent at the start of the season but now is a mere ghost of himself. Same with Mavropanos, he and holding looked phenomenal against manure but quickly evaporated. AMN is another example. What happens to these players?
