Fabrizio Romano has claimed on Twitter that Benfica left-back Nuno Tavares is undergoing a medical at Arsenal at the moment. The well-known and well-respected journalist has reported that Arsenal already have an agreement with Benfica over the transfer of the 21-year-old.
Romano has said that Tavares is now in London undergoing a medical. The Portuguese youngster will sign a contract with the Gunners until June 2026.
Tavares will join Arsenal as the back-up to Kieran Tierney at left-back. The 24-year-old former Celtic left-back is the clear first choice in his position at the Emirates Stadium, but manager Mikel Arteta does need to sign a suitable back-up. Tavares is only 21, which means that he can only improve and develop as a footballer in the coming years.
