Transferring Tavares ‘really difficult’
Atalanta manager Lee Congerton admitted the Serie A side have some interest in Arsenal full-back Nuno Tavares, but said it would be difficult to sign him.
Tavares only signed with Arsenal last summer, but after a difficult first season, reports have claimed he could leave on loan. Atlanta was promoted as a potential destination, with Congerton speaking of their interest.
“I’ve followed Tavares since he was playing for the Benfica youth team, he’s a strong player,” Congerton explained. “But Tavares is under contract with Arsenal – and it’s really hard to sign players from Premier League clubs.”
