Video – Let’s look at the skills of Nuno Tavares

Now that we all know that Nuno Tavares has signed his contract with Arsenal and has flown over to London, it’s about time we had a look at his defensive and offensive capabilities.

He is ostensibly here as a back up to Kieran Tierney, but I am sure that Mikel Arteta has seen some of his own qualities that could be put to good use for the Gunners.

And it is no secret that Tierney is prone to the odd injury, so we may be seeing more of Tavares than we should expect…

Anyway, watch and enjoy!

    Welcome Tavares! A breath of fresh air. Hopefully we never again see Kolasinac in our jersey again. Hope some club somewhere on this planet agrees to hire him so that we dont have to “honor the contract”
    Sambi next!

      @I don’t think @Sue will be very pleased with your Kolasinac statement. 😊

  2. Arsenal2win says:

    An important transfer in a vital position, hope 2 see more like this soon.

    based on video
    i see a winger rather than a full back
    hope not another andre santos

    Looks like he could easily play in multiple positions,just read 2 reports on him and looks like a steal for the money reported that we have payed for him ,with TIerney on the treatment table quite often this makes a lot of sense ,hopefully he’s an able understudy at left back and maybe he could push through and get a permanent squad place rather than being bought and loaned out ,to me looks like he could play even CM ,pace ,height and a great tackle from what I have read about him .
    Let’s hope it goes through .

      Let’s hope he’s ready for our coach.

    Welcome to EMIRATES, feel at HOME. Next (may be White).

    We’ve signed Tavares? An American 70s/80s funk/soul band! Perhaps we could have a Back Four Tops? The Temptations in midfield with Smokey Robinson at CF and the Miracles either side. “Sounds” like a winning combination to me 😊

    Welcome to the Emirates Tavares. One player who has been impressive recently is Insigne. The guy is top quality.

  8. Break-on-through says:

    Welcome to the carpet, Tavares.

    Can’t wait to see who our midfield recruits will be. Xhaka, Guendouzi, AMN, Willock loan? Ceballos, Odegaard, all possibly leaving. We’ve a long way to go.

  9. Goonster says:

    How is he a RB?

    From the video he looks like a proper winger.

  10. J Krown7 says:

    Wow!!! Am so amazed by what I saw on the video. The guy is multi talented. He can play as a defender, as a winger, as forward, even as a central midfielder. Am so impressed. Welcome to the Emirates, boy! Wish you all the very best. Up Gunners, for life! ARSENALFC

  11. Dhoni says:

    He plays similarly to Trent of Liverpool good going forward and expressing himself. Good player to have on our books. Sure will be worth more than the money paid for. This is a smart and good signing esp when u know Tierney might get injured. He will get a lot of game time i guess.

  12. Declan says:

    I’m wondering if he is being bought in not only as a possible backup to Tierney but as a left sided midfielder or indeed a left winger as he certainly has the attacking attributes to suit both positions.
