Nottingham Forest are interested in signing Nuno Tavares from Premier League rivals Arsenal in the summer transfer window, according to Fabrizio Romano. The Italian journalist has reported on Twitter that Forest have made a formal bid to the Gunners to bring Tavares to the City Ground on a permanent deal.
Tavares has been on the books of Arsenal since 2021 when he joined from Benfica. The 23-year-old Portuguese left-back spent last season on loan at Marseille in Ligue 1. Kieran Tierney and Oleksandr Zinchenko are the other two senior left-backs on the books of Arsenal at the moment.
