Arsenal ready to listen to offers for £30,000-a-week defender

Arsenal are planning to sell Nuno Tavares during the summer transfer window. The 23-year-old defender’s current value may have reached its highest level since joining the London giants after an excellent loan at Marseille.

The Spanish coach will continue to build his squad, and the Gunners could make approaches for big-name arrivals in the summer. Arsenal are in pole position to win the PL title with 12 matches to go. And they solidified their position with a stunning late victory over Bournemouth.

Despite disastrous results over two years earlier, Arsenal had kept faith in Mikel Arteta. Owner Stan Kroenke has greatly supported the Spanish boss and technical director, Edu Gaspar. Together they have achieved their targets in the transfer window since the last campaign and will continue on this building-up journey.

The squad looks nearly complete now, as the Gunners addressed their depth issues with three new arrivals in winter. Trossard, Jorginho and Kiwior are seen as astute inclusions that would help them in the late title push. Marseille might approach the Gunners to understand the financial requirements to add the Portuguese defender.
