Arsenal left-back Nuno Tavares has joined Marseille on a season-long loan, the Premier League club have announced.
The 22-year-old Portuguese made 28 appearances in all competitions last season after joining the Gunners from Benfica in the summer of 2021.
He scored once, in a 3-1 win over Manchester United at the Emirates Stadium in April.
Opportunities may be more limited this season with manager Kieran Tierney’s first choice, left-back Mikel Arteta and another option in the position, Oleksandr Zinchenko, newly joining the club.
Tavares was once linked with Italian side Atalanta but will instead join last season’s Ligue 1 runners-up for the 2022-23 campaign.
An Arsenal statement read: “Everyone at Arsenal wishes Nuno all the best for next season with Marseille.
“The loan agreement must complete the management processes.”
