Fresh Arsenal newsletter

Arsenal have completed a deal that could see them raise a significant amount of money in the future.

Nuno Tavares is set to embark on a loan journey with Nottingham Forest, and the deal includes an option to buy for approximately £13 million. This transfer, confirmed today, could yield Arsenal a noteworthy return on their initial investment, as they had acquired Tavares for a mere £7 million.

The loan arrangement, which comes with a substantial loan fee of nearly £2 million, demonstrates Nottingham Forest’s commitment to the Portuguese left-back’s potential. The option to buy will activate automatically if Tavares meets certain conditions – believed to be a specific number of appearances, coupled with Nottingham Forest maintaining their Preier League status.

This move offers a win-win scenario for both clubs, with Tavares gaining valuable experience in the Premier League, and Arsenal having the potential to recoup a significant fee, marking a smart return on their investment.

Tavares’ style of play promises excitement and in a wing back system, he could do well.
