Arsenal set huge buy clause for Nuno Tavares as Atalanta target left-back

Atalanta are interested in signing Arsenal left-back Nuno Tavares but the two clubs are in disagreement over the terms of a deal, according to reports.

Tavares has struggled while deputising for Kieran Tierney since joining the Gunners from Benfica last summer.

The north London club are believed to be keen on adding cover at left-back this summer, with Bologna’s Aaron Hickey linked with a switch to the Emirates Stadium.

Gianluca Di Marzio claims that Serie A club Atalanta are eyeing a move for Tavares.

However, Arsenal are said to have requested either a regular season-long loan move, or a loan deal including an option to buy for £34m.

The report states that neither of those conditions are currently matching up with Atalanta’s expectations.

Meanwhile, Porto have confirmed the transfer of Fabio Vieira to Arsenal in a deal worth £34m.

The attacking midfielder is the north London club’s third signing of the summer window after Alex Turner and Marquinhos.

Arsenal are still pursuing more new signings, with Manchester City’s Gabriel Jesus and Leicester City’s Youri Tielemans strongly linked.
