Arsenal reach agreement to sign Benfica star Nuno Tavares

Arsenal have reportedly reached an agreement to sign Benfica star Nuno Tavaras. The versatile full back will join Arsenal in a £12m deal and sign a four year contract worth £2.5m a season.

His arrival will be a massive boast for Mikel Arteta who will finally be having a player capable of providing competition for both Kieren Tierney and Hector Bellerin.

Added to that, the 6ft defender is also good in creating chances for his teammates to score as well as finishing off chances himself. Last season, he scored 6 goals with 3 assists in 27 appearances for Benfica.

Least to forget, Tavaras is only 20-years-old, he will need time to adjust to Arsenal and the demands of the Premier League.
