Mikel Arteta have been frustrated by the poor behavior of Nuno Tavares. Arteta is yet to decide whether he wants to bring Nuno Tavares back or sanction his leave this season. The player have reportedly frustrated the manager last season with bad behavior. Arsenal had spent £ 8 million on Tavares when they signed him from the Portuguese side. Nuno Tavares have been an Arsenal player since 2021. He was brought in as the competition for left-back Kieran Tierney. Furthermore, the player had an eventful debut season for the Gunners. But he had also managed to disappoint Arteta in other important games. The Gunners had finally decided last summer that the player still needs experience. He was yet to be a first choice for Arteta in the Arsenal squad. Therefore they opted to loan him out to Marseille.
Nuno Tavares could be sold off this summer by Arsenal
Arsenal had loaned out Nuno Tavares to Marseille at the start of this season. The Gunners had brought in Oleksandr Zinchenko from Manchester City this season. The Ukrainian was brought in to rival Kieran Tierney. He have performed exceptionally well for the Gunners so far. He have become a reliable player for the Arteta squad this season. Nuno Tavares on the other hand have been doing well for Marseille since joining them. Although he have been criticized by the French media for his poor performances for the team. It has been stated that the player have looked lost many times in big games. Reports had claimed that Arteta and his team had often been annoyed with the player. This along with Tavares’ inexperience was one of the reasons why he was shipped off to Marseille.
Arsenal could end up selling Nuno Tavares after the season ends. However, the ultimate decision will lie with Mikel Arteta and his staff. They will likely monitor the player in the training and decide from then on. If the player appears to be way behind Tierney and Zinchenko, then the sale is likely to go through.
