Serie A side reportedly winning race for Nuno Tavares loan deal

Italian side on the verge of signing Arsenal defender

Atalanta are close to sealing a season-long loan move for Arsenal defender Nuno Tavares, according to reliable Italian journalist Gianluca di Marzio.

After the Portuguese wing back had a mixed debut season at the Emirates Stadium, several reports stated that the Gunners are looking at a whole host of left backs as back up to Tierney.

The London side were seriously interested in landing former Ajax man Lisandro Martinez. When their pursuit came to a dead end, the club did not waste much time on landing Oleksandr Zinchenko from Man City.

The Ukrainian international’s arrival will certainly pave the way for Tavares to leave the club on a temporary basis.

The report further said that the talks between the two parties are close to the finish line, as Atalanta continue to work on the final details.

A move away from the Emirates Stadium can prove invaluable for Tavares, who’s still just 22-years-old.

The former Benfica man clearly has things which need ironing out. And a place where he will get a look in every week will benefit him.

I’ve seen enough of the player to come to the conclusion that Tavares is an exciting prospect and that he can have a wonderful career.

That’s why a loan move without a buy option is a smart move from the North London outfit. I wish him all the very best for his Italian adventure.

  1. Lol..zinchenko for left back after all which i think is best for can’t play left back at city and want to play In midfield for arsenal Its like belittling arsenal..he will be our first choice left back and move forward to left side midfield when we are in possession of the ball…that’s how Arteta wants his fullbacks to play…Now we still need a left sided attacking midfielder that will push higher up the opposition box when we have the ball, Paqueta comes to mind and then a goal scoring winger capable of playing both flanks ( Cody gakpo) but first we need to Clear the dead woods

      1. In most games when we need to be more offensive he will start at left back if both players are fit..I will remind you of this

  2. I want to agree with Grandad but for different reasons.

    Zinchenko will be our first choice because of share availability, Tierney offer us a different option when fit though, maybe the only player we have that will hug the bylines. We will be more press resistant with Zinchenko at left back.

    Am highly pleased for Tavares to leave on loan Pepe and Lokonga should join him also.
