Nuno Tavares has become Arsenal’s first signing of the summer transfer window after joining from Benfica.

Tavares has spoken his first words after signing for Arsenal admitting that his transfer move is a dream come true for him.

“When I finished the season my agent told me that Arsenal were interested in me. In the first instance I was very happy and after this I dreamed about it, and [spoke about it] with my mum. I was so excited to be here, and now I’m here I’m so happy. Tavares said in his first interview.

“Mikel and Edu helped me so much. They speak with me every time, and call me and I feel people want me here. I like that because I need this power and I’m so grateful for this.”

In the interview, Tavares also mentioned the current players that have impressed him as well as his favourite Arsenal legend.

“In the present I like [Emile Smith Rowe], because he is my generation,” Tavares said.

“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 Saka too. Young players, good players. From the past I like Henry. A very good player, and it’s good for me to remember that story.

The Portuguese fullback also highlighted what he has to offer and can be expected from him. “I am fast, I am good at shooting with my right foot, but I’m left-footed,” Tavares told Arsenal. “I can dribble, improvising. That’s my qualities, my technique. I have more qualities and I will find more in this club.
