Tavares transfer “really difficult”
Atalanta director Lee Congerton admits the Serie A outfit do have some interest in Arsenal full-back Nuno Tavares, but says it will be hard to sign him.
Tavares only signed for the Gunners last summer, but after a difficult first season, reports have claimed he could leave on loan. Atalanta have been touted as a potential destination, with Congerton speaking on their interest.
“I’ve followed Tavares since he was playing for Benfica’s youth team, he’s a strong player,” Congerton explained. “But Tavares is under contract with Arsenal – and it’s really difficult to sign players from Premier League clubs.”
