The defender will be Mikel Arteta's first signing of the summer and provide cover for Kieran Tierney in what has been a problem area

Arsenal have agreed a deal with Benfica for Nuno Tavares, with the left-back set to undergo a medical with the Gunners ahead of a £7 million ($9.7m) transfer.

After a slight hitch in negotiations on Tuesday, a deal for the 21-year-old has now been reached.
