‘Here we go’ – 22 year-old has ‘full agreement’ on Ligue 1 move

Fabrizio Romano has claimed that Nuno Tavares has a ‘full agreement’ in place to join Marseille on loan from Arsenal this summer, with his medical set to take place tomorrow.

The defender has fallen down the pecking order in north London following the arrival of Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City, with both Kieran Tierney and the new signing expected to battle it out for a first-team role this term.

It makes sense that the Portuguese would be looking to move on under the new circumstances, and while Atalanta were believed to be keen on a deal, we were unhappy with the idea of including an option to buy which ended negotiations, and an agreement is now claimed to be in place for him to join Marseille instead.

The French club can offer Champions League football to our youngster, with William Saliba and Matteo Guendouzi having helped them to secure a second-placed finish in the French division last term, and if the Portuguese can play regularly in their side he could well come back ready to rival our current duo for a role in our side.

  1. Tavares on loan to l’OM,Bellerin to Betis with Arsenal ready to terminate his contract after accepting that he will not go anywhere else, that’s another 5/6 still to go.good luck to Tavares at Marseille,he is going to need it,they are a tough crowd to please.if he doesn’t,they will let him know about it.

  2. Excellent move both for him and for Arsenal . If he gets regular start then by a bit of coaching he can become world class as we all have seen his potential. Good luck to him .
    With him gone , Bellerin to terminate contract and Leno to join Fulham . We may need to move on a couple more like Torreira and Mari . Then we may see some incomings .
    My only worry in this squad is Thomas Partey . We do not have any proper back up for him because with Elmeny there is a considerable drop off

  3. This is the correct decision taken on Tavares.

    Wish the youngster all the best, while am not sure if its the same coach there from last season, can only hope we have instal something in the loan deal to ensure he gets adequate playing time.

    His flare and Speedy forward drive, will endear him with the faithfuls

    1. Very good point!not the same coach and that could be a worry. negotiations started with the former coach still in charge so is he the club’s or the new coach signing?

  4. Great decision. He will get a taste of competetive UCL football. That will refine his skillset abd hopefully curb his defensive frailties and other weaknesses.

  5. This could be the deal Marseille president came to London to do that has been reported as an attempt to buy William Saliba, I guess

    1. You could be right! Longoria may have needed a guide/translator while in London and Saliba’s agent was there.👍
