Lazio submit enquiry for Nuno Tavares

Nuno Tavares is expected to leave Arsenal permanently this summer, with Serie A outfit Lazio prepared to provide him with an exit route.

According to a report by Calciomercato, Serie A club Lazio have made an enquiry for Nuno Tavares, and it will be interesting to see if they can agree on a deal with Arsenal. The Gunners will be looking to get rid of the Portuguese defender this summer. The 24-year-old is not a key player for them, and he is not a part of their first-team plans next season either.

The player has spent the last two seasons out on loan at clubs like Marseille and Nottingham Forest. He needs to leave Arsenal permanently to get his career back on track and establish himself as a regular starter. It will be interesting to see if the Italian outfit can get the deal done.

A move to Italy could be ideal for him. The 24-year-old left-back is versatile enough to operate as a wing-back as well as a winger. He could prove to be the ideal addition for Lazio. Given his situation at Arsenal, he could be available for a reasonable price as well. Arsenal are unlikely to demand a premium for a player who is not a part of their plans going forward.

Lazio move could be ideal for Nuno Tavares

A moved to Lazio will be quite attractive for the Portuguese defender as well. It would be a major step up from Nottingham Forest. He will look to establish himself as a regular starter for the Italian club and continue his development with regular football.

The 24-year-old is still relatively young enough to improve further with coaching and experience. If Lazio can sign him for a reasonable price this summer, the move would look like a bargain in the long term.

Meanwhile, it will be interesting to see if Arsenal decide to bring in a quality left-back this summer. Along with Tavares, Kieran Tierney is also expected to leave the club, and Arsenal are lacking in depth in the left back department. It remains to be seen how the situation develops.
