Lazio linked with a move for Arsenal left-back Nuno Tavares

Arsenal‘s defender, Nuno Tavares, has emerged as a target for clubs in the renowned Italian Serie A. The talented left-back, presently plying his trade on loan at Nottingham Forest for the ongoing Premier League campaign, has garnered significant attention from Lazio.

During his stint at Nottingham Forest this season, Tavares showcased his prowess in 11 appearances, impressing with his defensive solidity. Furthermore, the Portuguese left-back has also left his mark on the international stage, featuring prominently in 16 matches for Portugal’s U21 squad and notching a goal along the way.

According to reports from reputable sources like Corriere dello Sport, Lazio’s head coach, Igor Tudor, holds a strong admiration for Tavares, stemming from their time together at Tudor’s former club, Marseille. Their prior collaboration has evidently left a lasting impression on Tudor, who had previously attempted to secure Tavares’ services back in 2021, albeit unsuccessfully as the player eventually joined Arsenal.

Now, Tudor appears keen to reignite his pursuit of the talented full-back, especially considering Tavares’ current situation at the Emirates Stadium, where he finds himself surplus to requirements. With Arsenal reportedly open to offloading Tavares to bolster their own transfer budget, Lazio could seize the opportunity to bolster their defensive ranks with the promising defender.

For Arsenal, parting ways with Tavares could serve as a means to generate additional funds for their impending transfer activities. Given the club’s desire to strengthen their squad in various areas, including the defensive department, the potential sale of Tavares could prove instrumental in facilitating their recruitment drive.


As talks surrounding Tavares’ future continue to gather momentum, the player himself may soon find himself embarking on a new chapter in his burgeoning career. A move to Serie A could offer Tavares the chance to further hone his skills in a highly competitive environment while also providing him with the opportunity to make a significant impact at a new club.

Ultimately, as speculation intensifies and negotiations progress, the coming weeks could prove pivotal in determining Nuno Tavares’ next destination and the trajectory of his professional journey.
