Why I joined Arsenal – Nuno Tavares
“He’s played against us, on the same side – he played on the right, I played on the left – for the selection (youth) team. He’s a good player, and I see [Bukayo] Saka too.”
He added, “Young players, good players. And from the past I like Henry. A very good player, and it’s good for me to remember that story.”
Tavares will hope to break into Mikel Arteta’s first team when the 2021/22 season starts.
