Portuguese left-back Nuno Tavares could stay at OM longer than expected, as Arsenal‘s management has made a decision about his future.
Nuno Tavares is having a good season with Olympique de Marseille. The 23-year-old left-back arrived on loan from Arsenal this season and has put in some impressive performances in Ligue 1, quickly becoming an undisputed starter at OM.
Despite some defensive lapses, the Portuguese player remains a key part of the system put in place by Igor Tudor. His acceleration on the right wing, powerful shots, agility, and ability to create danger going forward have been a great asset to OM. The Marseille management would like to keep him at the end of the season, even though his loan does not include an option to buy.
Like William Saliba, who shone last season at OM before returning to the Premier League, Nuno Tavares is supposed to return to Arsenal in July. However, this situation has taken a new turn in recent weeks. The Gunners’ management is seriously considering getting rid of their young player permanently.
OM Mercato : Arsenal resigned to sell Nuno Tavares
As indicated in Calciomercato’s article today, Arsenal has reportedly decided to sell Nuno Tavares during the next transfer window. The British club’s objective would be to receive a handsome fee for his permanent transfer in order to finance the arrival of a new left-back next season. If this decision were to be confirmed, it would be good news for OM.
The direction of Olympique de Marseille will then have to find the necessary funds to complete the permanent transfer of Nuno Tavares. In the meantime, the player himself does not exclude the idea of continuing his adventure on the Canebière, even if he knows that the final decision will be up to his club. For now, he remains focused on his season with Marseille. He is expected to start in OM‘s next match against Stade Rennais, which will take place on Sunday from 8:45 pm at Roazhon Park.
