Tavares agrees loan move

Nuno Tavares has undergone a medical ahead of his proposed move to Marseille.

The Portuguese wing-back joined Arsenal from Benfica last summer, and had a mixed first season in English football.

Offering a threat going forward, he was less certain at the back, and was guilty of several high profile mistakes.

Now with the signing of Oleksandr Zinchenko, it is recognised that he may be struggling for first-team minutes in the season ahead and the best thing is for him to go on loan for him to continue his development,

However, the deal does not include any option to buy. Arsenal still believe that they have a talent on their hands, and that he just needs some of the rough edges taken off his game.

Arsenal and Marseille have had a good relationship in recent years, with the Gunners lending them both Matteo Guendouzi and William Saliba. Guendouzi is now with the French side full-time, but Saliba is back at the Emirates.
