Tavares eyes permanent Marseille move

Full-back Nuno Tavares has already intimated that he hopes his loan move to Marseille can become permanent.

The 22-year old joined the Ligue 1 side from Arsenal on loan in the summer, and has made a bright start at his new club, starting five of their first six league games and scoring in three of them.

Although the loan is only for the 2022/2023 season, the agreement between the two clubs does include an option to buy, something that he insists was inserted as a clause.

He joined the Gunners from Benfica a year ago, and, although he showed plenty of promise going forward, he was less assured when it came to his defensive responsibilities, and made several high profile mistakes.

He was sent on loan to give him more first-team football but, if he continues on his current trajectory, there must be an increasing chance that he will never be seen in an Arsenal shirt again.
