Arsenal on the verge of completing transfer after personal terms agreed

According to Football Insider Arsenal has already reached a verbal agreement on personal terms with the highly-rated Dutch defender Jurrien Timber.

Negotiations between Arsenal and Ajax are set to take place in the coming days, with the focus on determining an agreeable fee for Timber’s services. The outcome of these talks will ultimately decide whether the 22-year-old will make the switch to the Emirates Stadium.

Timber has proven himself as a quality defender during his time at Ajax, earning praise for his performances in both domestic and European competitions. The young Dutchman possesses the necessary skill set to make a seamless transition to the demanding environment of the Premier League.

With defensive depth being a priority for Arsenal this summer, Timber’s potential acquisition would be a significant boost to Mikel Arteta’s squad. Notably, the versatile defender is comfortable playing as a central defender or as a full-back, providing tactical flexibility and an added bonus for the Gunners’ manager.

Last season, Arsenal fell short of their Premier League title aspirations due to a lack of squad depth and quality. The untimely injury to William Saliba during the final stages of the campaign further hampered their pursuit of domestic glory. As a result, Arteta is keen on addressing these deficiencies in his squad ahead of the new season.

Timber’s potential move to Arsenal represents an opportunity for the young defender to continue his development at a prestigious club. Under Arteta’s guidance, the Gunners’ manager, known for his adeptness in nurturing young talent, Timber could fulfil his potential and establish himself as one of the top defenders in European football.

To compete at the highest level, particularly in the Champions League, Arsenal must significantly bolster their squad during the transfer window. Signings such as Timber would help bridge the gap between the Gunners and the continent’s elite clubs, enhancing their chances of success on multiple fronts.

As discussions unfold between Arsenal and Ajax, fans eagerly await updates on the progress of Timber’s potential move to North London. Should the deal materialise, Timber’s arrival would undoubtedly bolster Arsenal’s defensive options and provide a strong foundation for their upcoming campaign.

  1. If we haven’t agreed a fee with Ajax yet I hardly think we are on the verge of completing this transfer the way our negotiations with selling clubs drag on forever. Agreeing personal terms with the player is the easy bit.

  2. Its simply untrue to claim, incorrectly, that we are on the verge of completing a transfer . That sort of comment should not be written as it is false and will remain false UNTIL AND UNLESS both clubs agree a final fee.

    I understand the fan need to see completed transfers but It cannot be done, at this high level, in mere days. That hope is for fantasists, not realists, so hold you horses and GET REAL!!l

    The last I saw was that we had offered £30 mill and AJAX wanted £50mill. Excuse the awful pun but if that is true(that we are on the verge of completing) then I AM A DUTCHMAN.

    It may happen and it also may not!

  3. He has a average rating under 7, which is not good from a league far inferior to the premiership considering the teams that play there. His heat map effort is lacking and his tackling is poor to average at best. He has one thing going for him and that is his passing, which is above average for a defender. Not sure he is worth more than £30 million though, considering his poor STAT ratings from a poor league. Hugh step up for him. Not sure he’s better than our reserves! Unless Arteta she’s him in a new position than the position he plays at Ajax!

  4. Timber is good enough to uplift Arsenal to the next level however much is from a new league.His system of play fits in Arsenal.

  5. Well, he will be an useful addition and defence is something we have to tighten up since we saw what happened last season after we lost Saliba to injury. That said, his multiple position adjustments will only benefit Arsenal.

  6. Arsenal transfers take forever. In one day they have reached agreement on personal terms with the player, but agreeing on a fee with the selling club lingers for God knows how long until the transfer becomes boring and annoying.
