Ajax rejects Arsenal’s opening bid for their talented player

Ajax has rejected Arsenal’s initial bid for Jurrien Timber as the Gunners intensify their efforts to strengthen their squad.

With a budget of approximately 200 million euros at his disposal, Mikel Arteta is determined to make astute investments in player acquisitions for the Emirates outfit.

While Declan Rice remains Arsenal’s primary target for the summer, negotiations are underway to secure the Englishman’s services. Additionally, the Gunners have expressed interest in signing Chelsea’s Kai Havertz. However, their pursuit extends beyond these two Premier League stars.

Recognising Timber as a potential defensive asset, Arsenal have reportedly made an offer of £30 million for the talented defender, according to the Daily Mail.

Regrettably for Arsenal, Ajax has rebuffed this bid and indicated that they value Timber at around £50 million. Consequently, the Dutch club has urged the Gunners to present an improved offer if they wish to secure the defender’s services.

Just Arsenal Opinion

Timber is one of the finest defenders in the Netherlands and we can be confident that he will do well on our book if we add him to our team.

Liverpool and Manchester United are also tracking the defender, which shows that he is a top talent we can trust to keep developing well.

    1. Not really,Arsenal were already looking at him in January but for some reason didn’t make a bid.

  1. This signing would be an awesome sign of Arsenal getting their ducks in a row.

    Timber is a player we need

  2. We need to hurry up because Timber played under ETH at Ajax next to Lisandro Martinez.he is the one who promoted him to the 1st team.Utd tried to sign him last summer but he decided to stay 1 more season.if you do not hurry up i could see s repeat of the Martinez scenario.

  3. This 22 year old is perfect for MA’s plans and will be a great signing.

    I’m starting to get worried that the three reported bids we have made are all below what the players are valued at by their current clubs.

    I understand and agree that we should not necessarily pay over the odds, but we are in danger of losing out on those players MA has identified as required to push the club forward.

    The difference in sterling to seal all three transfers seems to be around £40,000,000 – let’s get this done!!!
