The 22-year-old Portuguese will play on loan

Left back of Arsenal Nuno Tavares signed a contract with Marseille.

According to insider Fabrizio Romano, the clubs have agreed to loan the player until June 2023.

Tavares was previously announced to move to Atalanta, but the deal fell through. Marseille, in turn, was ready to rent a defender. At the same time, the Londoners will not include the right to buy out Tavares in the agreement with Marseille.

Nunu has made 28 appearances for the London club in all competitions, in which the 22-year-old defender scored one goal and provided two assists.

It should be noted that Arsenal recently signed Ukrainian defender Oleksandr Zinchenko. The footballer signed a four-year contract with the Gunners and has already managed to make his debut in the team of Mikel Arteta.

Arsenal will play against Crystal Palace in the opening round of the new Premier League season on August 5. Marseille will host Reims on August 7 in the first round of the French championship.
