Nuno Tavares reveals the Arsenal players he really admires

Arsenal's new signing Nuno Tavares has revealed he admires a number of the club's young players. 

The 21-year-old was officially presented to the club on Saturday, signing a five-year deal to become the Gunners' first signing of the summer.

In his first interview as a Gooner, Tavares, who featured against Arsenal in the Europa League singled out Emile Smith Rowe as one of the players he likes most. 

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

“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.

“You have a good project,” he added. “Young people, it's good for me and we learn together because we can understand together and we can have an evolution together with the young guys. It's the same. It's a good project with young guys and we understand each other.”

The Gunners are keen on further strengthening the side to improve on their dismal performance last season when they finished eighth, missing on European football for the first time in 25 years.
