Mikel Arteta looks to offload Nuno Tavares to reduce Arsenal’s bloated squad

Mikel Arteta, the manager of Arsenal, is looking to offload Nuno Tavares in order to reduce the size of the team’s squad.

Tavares, a 23-year-old defender, has an uncertain future at the club and Arteta is eager to trim down the squad.

Nottingham Forest is reportedly accelerating their pursuit of Tavares, with discussions advancing but the type of deal (loan or permanent) yet to be decided.

Tavares has also attracted interest from clubs in Germany, but he would prefer to stay in the English Premier League.

Arsenal signed Tavares from Benfica in 2021, but he failed to impress Arteta and was sent out on loan to Marseille.

With Tavares surplus to requirements, he could be one of several players sold before the end of the transfer window.

Arteta has described the current size of the squad as “unsustainable” and is looking to make further changes before the market closes.
