Brighton are in talks with Arsenal about signing Nuno Tavares on a season long loan deal.
The 22 year old joined Arsenal from Benfica last season for a fee around £8m. Tavares started the season well up until his errors in Arsenal’s home game against Liverpool.
Though good offensively, he lacks experience and is always exposed as a defender. Arsenal will welcome the opportunity of loaning him out to get the needed game time and experience.
With the signing of Zinchenko from Manchester city, Tavares is expected to get minimum game time. Going on a season long loan deal will be of benefit to him.
Arsenal have made five signings in this current transfer window. Gabriel Jesus, Marquinhos, Fabio vieira, Matt Turner and Zinchenko have all joined the gunners.
