Marseille weighing up a move for another Arsenal player

Olympique de Marseille had two players from Arsenal on loan last season and they enjoyed their services.

William Saliba and Matteo Guendouzi did well for the French club in their temporary spell, with the latter remaining there permanently.

Saliba will get a chance to play for the Gunners in the next campaign, but another Gunner could join Guendouzi at OM.

A report on The Sun claims they have an interest in taking Nuno Tavares on loan for the 2022/2023 campaign.

The Portugal Under-21 international struggled in his first campaign at the Emirates and Arsenal has been linked with a move for Aaron Hickey of Bologna who will act as his replacement.

Marseille signed Sead Kolasinac in the January transfer window, but the Bosnian has flopped and they will now look to replace him with Tavares.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Marseille always gives chances to Arsenal loanees and that is a good thing. The Ligue 1 side deserves to get more Arsenal stars on loan as long as they will guarantee that they will field these players.

Tavares probably needs a season of regular first-team action to become better equipped to deal with the demands at the Emirates.

  1. When you find a shop that sells what you like cheap , why wouldn’t they keep coming back.

  2. I believe it would be a big mistake if we were to give up on this player so soon, especially with the lack of initial investment and his potential going forward

  3. We do not have enough depth in the left back to loan him.
    We have two academy players, who are yet to have any senior minutes and we have one extra competition this season.
    This can only happen if we signed a ledt back who is more proven or at least MA truts more.

    Nuno may be better as wing back with back three, same goes for Cedric.

  4. So, OM has become our new youth training club, eh? Why don’t we just hire Sampaoli, since he’s the guy getting the best out of the players that go there…IJS

  5. I would loan him. Given Tierney’s record over 3 seasons with us, his appearance record is just over 50%, meaning Taveras will likely play a lot next season what with European football again. I for one don’t like the idea on relying on him for that many games.

    Loan him, and sign a quality LB as it’s time to replace Tierney.

  6. Marseille were talking to Arsenal about the permanent signing of Saliba because he wants to stop at Marseille. Dont know the outcome but at the same time asked about Tavares on loan. The article is only half the story.
