If Forest survive, £12m would be cheap, considering we paid £8m and he'd have 3 seasons of regular top division experience under his belt.

Yeah problem is experience or not he’s not very good and can’t defend.

Another player who can’t defend isn’t going to help Forest leaky defence.

That's a hell of a way to spin 22 first team Arsenal appearances resulting in being loaned out and not invited back

£12m is cheap regardless, they'd be paying more if he came straight from Marseille. He might have been bad here, but only on the basis of the non-negotiables BS that was doing the rounds back then.

I see Zinchenko on £150k casually giving the ball away for 2 -2 this past weekend and I think maybe Arteta gives up on some of his boys a little too easily.

Zinchenko has four PL medals.

It's not a sensible comparison.

I'm not saying Zinny is Tavares level, just that £12m is a steal for somebody who's played regular top level football for the past 2 years.

Some players just don't perform under Arteta, and we're too quick to say that they're worth nothing. That's become a self-fulfilling prophecy under Edu and it shouldn't be.

I wish a plague of aids infected, Cliff Richard singing locusts on Forest, having travelled to watch us lose at the City Ground three times in the last six years

But failing that, Tavares will just have to do I suppose

Chelsea sold a LB with less than 10 professional games for £35m lol plus a sell on clause.

And we have people on here saying the club has done well to secure loan deals for Tierney and Tavares lol.

Bizarre that we refused to include a buy clause in the Marseille deal lol

Hope he does well though.

Forest building an interesting team tbh

I’d rather the club steered clear of money laundering.
