‘Contract signed’: Fabrizio Romano drops Arsenal news overnight before deadline

Fabrizio Romano has revealed a ‘deal’ has been signed for Nuno Tavares to secure a last-minute move from Arsenal’s Mikel Arteta to Steve Cooper’s Nottingham Forest.

The transfer expert added Twitter Nuno Tavares will initially move to the City Ground on loan with a £12million “option to buy” plus surcharges.

It’s a move that suits all parties as it’s pretty clear Tavares isn’t part of Arteta’s first-team plans at Arsenal.

But he will earn those regular minutes under Steve Cooper, whose Nottingham Forest side are trying to stabilize further after surviving relegation last season.

In 2021 Arsenal brought the much-cherished full-back to the Emirates but he simply couldn’t find his feet at a side that had made huge strides in that time.

The 23-year-old spent last season on loan at Marseille where things started well but faded. Well, he’s hoping for a more consistent performance now.

“EXCL: Nuno Tavares loan deal between Nottingham Forest and Arsenal has now been signed with new details,” said Romano.

“Understand loan fee is £1m, buy option is £12m but also £3m additional surcharges for Arsenal.” #AFC. The call option clause could become mandatory if certain conditions are met.”

A busy deadline day for Arsenal

We are now in for the craziest 24 hours in football as teams across Europe look for last minute deals they could have landed weeks ago.

Arsenal are expected to be in the heat of the bottle and perhaps see more exits than arrivals at the Emirates.

Tavares will be confirmed soon, while another disgraced defender, Rob Holding, could also follow suit.
