The imminent move comes after extensive talks between the two clubs, and the player will now no longer take part in Ajax training sessions.
- Ajax’s Jurrien Timber set for Arsenal move as the clubs near an agreement.
- Anticipation builds as Timber’s medical is scheduled for next week, underlining the urgency of the transfer.
- Arsenal’s management sees Timber as a potential fit for the inverted right-back role.
After Timber made it clear that he wanted to join Arsenal, the Gunners made a concrete offer, smoothing the transfer process.
In the strategic scheme of Arsenal’s manager, Mikel Arteta, and technical director, Edu, Timber is seen as an inverted right-back.
In this role, he would play in midfield when the team are in possession – a position where Timber’s quality on the ball and experience at right-back could truly shine.
Jurrien Timber, with 47 appearances for Ajax in the 2022/23 campaign and 15 caps for the Netherlands’ national team, would undoubtedly be a strong addition to Arsenal’s squad.
His performance on the international stage, including notable games in the Qatar 2022 World Cup, underlines his high calibre.
Final agreements, medical checks, and official announcements are expected to unfold over the coming days.
His Arsenal contract will run until 2028 and you can read more about the wages he will be paid here.
