Arsenal news: Nuno Tavares set for Champions League football after completing Marseille loan move

Arsenal left-back Nuno Tavares has agreed a loan move to Ligue 1 outfit Marseille.

The 22-year-old arrived at the Emirates in the summer of 2021 from Benfica for a reported transfer fee of £8million. 

Tavares has since made 28 first-team appearances across all competitions, including 22 in the Premier League.

The Portugal U21 international scored his first goal for the Gunners in a 3-1 victory over Manchester United back in April.

Tavares will have the opportunity to play Champions League football after Marseille qualified for the tournament by finishing second in Ligue 1 last season.

The French giants finished the campaign a massive 15 points behind eventual league winners PSG.

Marseille return to Europe's elite club competition for just the second time in eight years as they look to re-establish themselves as Champions League regulars.

The club have already done business with Arsenal during this summer transfer window after sealing a permanent move for Matteo Guendouzi.

Marseille splashed £8.8million on the midfielder, who fell out of favour with Gunners boss Mikel Arteta.

The French club have also signed Lens defender Jonathan Clauss and Granada forward Luis Suarez during a busy transfer window for Igor Tudor's side.
