Nottingham Forest is currently engaged in discussions aimed at securing the services of Arsenal’s left-back, Nuno Tavares, for a season-long loan arrangement.

In addition to the loan agreement, there are ongoing negotiations regarding a potential buy option, with Arsenal expressing openness towards a permanent sale, according to Sky Sports.

Having completed a loan stint with Marseille during the previous season, Tavares has garnered significant experience. His market value is estimated at €15 million.
