[Image] Nuno Tavares passes medical and is on his way to Arsenal

The unveiling of Arsenal’s fist signing of the summer is coming closer, as the Record in Portugal has revealed that the 21 year-old has had to have his medical yesterday in Portugal before flying to London today.

Because of Covid protocols it was thought that his medical, which would normally have been done at London Colney, would have to wait until after his quarantine on arrival in London.

But having his obligatory fitness tests in Lisbon has speeded up that process and we should be able to call him an Arsenal player officially very, very soon…

Here is the top of the article in the Record breaking the news…..

Nuno Tavares tested in Lisbon before heading to England

Unless otherwise indicated, it is today that the side travels to London

Already absent from yesterday’s two training sessions for the red squad, Nuno Tavares performed, still in Lisbon, the mandatory medical and physical tests before signing a contract with Arsenal.

Welcome to Arsenal, Nuno!

    1. Medical passed only.

      Won’t announce until ink on paper.

      Knowing us the plane will get hijacked !

  1. Welcome Tavares! But have they found a dumping yard for Kolasinac? Or another “honor the contract” scenario for him too?

  2. Not very very soon – quarantine is 10 days indoors. Could be a while yet…(leaves time for those Rosetta Stone English courses though!)

  3. Hmm

    This signing is sketchy..

    Most benfica fans were happy to see him go.. Thats a heavy red flag.. Hope am proved wrong

    1. He’s leaving a home club for a big club. Who doesn’t want to see that upgrade for your countryman. They have to be happy

  4. The cynicism on this site about how our club handles incoming and outgoing transfers is not surprising in the least. Nor is it misplaced, as Gooners have become accustomed, sadly, to many shambolic drawn out transfers which have rightly made us all suspicious whenever any single transfer is prematurely said to be concluded.

    It is never concluded until the player in question signs the contact, as well yet be the case with Ben White. Who knows!
    I of course realise that these days, with agents and Covid and all sorts of other wrangles, no important transfer is ever easy. But even given those matters, each and every important transfer still seems to take far longer with our club than with other clubs.

    Coincidence or incompetence then? I know which I believe.
