He has made 30 appearances in all competitions this season, and his attacking contributions have been noteworthy.
Defensive shortcomings raise questions
Despite Tavares’ promising performances in attack, his defensive mistakes have raised concerns within the Marseille management.
According to recent reports by L’Equipe, the Portuguese full-back has not convinced the club to keep him beyond this season.
His departure is scheduled, and the Marseillais do not plan to enlist him permanently at the end of the season.

It is possible that he could return to Arsenal, where he still has two years left on his contract.
