Welcome to The Arsenal, Nuno Tavares! | First interview after signing from Benfica

Nuno Tavares has joined us from Benfica on a long-term contract.

The 21-year-old defender developed through the Benfica youth system, making his Benfica B debut in October 2018, before progressing into the first team squad. He made his first-team debut in the Portuguese Super Cup win over Sporting Lisbon in August 2019.

Over the past two seasons, the Portugal Under-21 international - who is predominantly a left-sided defender - made 25 appearances for Benfica. He was in the matchday squad for both matches we played against them in last season’s Europa League last-32, coming on as a late substitute in the second leg.

Enjoy match highlights, training and behind the scenes to get closer to the likes of Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, Vivianne Miedema, Nicolas Pepe, Alexandre Lacazette, Leah Williamson, Bernd Leno, Willian, Hector Bellerin, Jordan Nobbs, Bukayo Saka, Kim Little, Gabriel Martinelli, Thomas Partey and more.

    He played very well for Benfica in the portuguese league, he has a lot of potencial and a lot of things to improve. In this 2020/2021 he didn't play that much because the current Benfica coach, Jorge Jesus, doesn't like to give play time to the youngster which is bad. Good luck to him and to you Arsenal fans 🔴⚪

    Good job Arsenal !!! One deal done...more to go. Tavares will be a good deputy to Tierney!!!...not Kolašinac or using Xhaka or Saka at LB !!! Everyone knows the area or roles that Arsenal lacked quality and depth last season....The team lacked a solid midfield partner to Thomas Partey, a ball-carrying player marker and a quality right back. These areas can be well-solved if Edu and Arteta can go full gear in this transfer and bring in Yves Bissouma, Houssem Aouar and Max Aarons. - Yves Bissouma replaces Granit Xhaka. - Houssem Aouar replaces Martin Ødegaard and Daniel Ceballos. - Max Aarons replaces Héctor Bellerín. Bringing in Benjamin White is a good deal and If Saliba is heading out on loan, then hopefully he comes back from his loan spell of a full year of active games under his belt to stake a position in defense next year in the team because that lad is one for the future. Also, to achieve a good window; Arsenal MUST get a rival for Leno (André Onana), give ESR a contract extension and Give Gabriel Martinelli the second slot in the central striking after Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. Bringing in Albert Lokonga is also a good deal. Him and Miguel Azeez should be under-studies to Partey and Bissouma. The Squad. GK: Leno/Onana RB: Chambers/Aarons LB: Tierney/Tavares RCB: White/Holding LCB: Magalhães/Mari CM: Partey/Lokonga and Bissouma/Elneny CAM: Aouar/ESR LW: Saka/Willian RW: Pepe/Nelson FW: Aubameyang/Martinelli My preferred Matchday lineup Leno Aarons White Gabriel Tierney Partey Aouar Bissouma Saka Aubameyang Pepe Subs: Onana, Chambers, Tavares, Holding, Mari, Lokonga, Elneny, ESR, Willian, Nelson, Martinelli, Azzez, Balogun With these setup and without European competition next season, Arsenal should focus on getting a good stand in the EPL with European UCL qualification in mind; get a good runs at the Cup competitions (FA and Carabo). **Arteta and Edu MUST be ruthless in this window and The KSE MUST spend big!!!**

    Dear Arsenal, there are times when you don't actually need top established "high priced" players to make a solid team. All you need is a talented player with Quality and room to continuously improve. Look at The Ajax side in 1995, The Man Utd side of 1999, The Leicester side in 2015.....and currently the Lille side that just won the Ligue 1 in France and the Rangers side that dethroned Celtic in Scotland! A team is solid when the players play as a unit to their strength and quality. Also a team makes progress with players that are manageable and coachable. Arsenal short-comings last season was the lack of a Creative ball-carrying midfielder, A quality RB, another quality GK and LB as well as a good DM partner for Partey! A team simply needs 3-4 players in key roles to build the remaining players around. Arsenal has Auba, Partey, Saka, Tierney, Pepe to build a team around. Example of these trusted generals in the teams I mentioned above includes; - Ajax (Blind, Rijkaard, Litmanen, Finidi) - Man Utd (Keane, Schmeichel, Scholes, Cole, Stam) - Leicester (Vardy, Morgan, Schmeichel, Kanté, Mahrez) - Lille (Fonte, Yılmaz, André, Reinildo, David) - Rangers (Goldson, Tavernier, Kent, Aribo, McGregor, Morelos) If Arsenal can get Aouar, Bissouma, Onana , Aarons , White along with Tavares & Lokonga, it will be a great transfer...and they will be a better team going forward! Arsenal don't have to spend big to get Grealish, Maddison or Isco...also, it is unwise to get a player who heart is somewhere like Locatelli and Ødegaard. Arsenal needs players that are fans of the club and looking forward to come and play and take the team back to the top....not a player that quotes or preferred Champions league football when he is supposed to come and fight for that privilege and honour! Arsenal must spend in this window but it must be smart and in KEY areas that needs backup, competition and improvement.
