    Talks between Forest and Arsenal appeared to stall last week, allowing Aston Villa to join the race for his signature, but Steve Cooper’s side have now managed to get a deal done.

    Tavares could be one of a number of potential departures from Arsenal before the summer transfer window comes to a close.

    Striker Folarin Balogun is closing in on a switch to Monaco which will net the Gunners over £40m, while the likes of Rob Holding and Cedric Soares could be sold as well.

    One player who is not currently being earmarked for an exit is versatile midfielder Emile Smith Rowe, for whom an enquiry from Chelsea was recently knocked back.
