Arsenal ready to offload 23yeard old defender.
Arsenal’s Portuguese left-back Nuno Tavares, who is currently on loan at Marseille, has failed to make a lasting impression at the Ligue 1 club, according to reports emerging from France. Despite scoring three goals in his first three games, the 23-year-old former Benfica man has since been average at best, raising doubts about his future prospects in the French top-flight.
The situation has reportedly not gone unnoticed at Arsenal, where manager Mikel Arteta is said to have similar doubts about Tavares’ reliability. The Gunners are now expected to let the defender go when his loan spell at Marseille ends, according to RMC Sport journalist Florent Germain.
“Marseille remain attentive, but the likelihood is a return to Arsenal,” Germain said. “The Arsenal bosses have the same opinion as the Marseille ones. They don’t see him as a reliable player. If Arsenal offer him around in the next transfer window and Marseille believe it’s worth it, there might be something to work out.”
It will be interesting to see what the future holds for Nuno Tavares.
