Arsenal’s new signing brother speaks about him joining the Gunners

Jurrien Timber was reportedly close to a move to Manchester United last season, but he ultimately decided to stay at Ajax for another year. However, he has now signed with Arsenal, making the Gunners fortunate to secure one of the most promising Dutch talents available.

The addition of Timber improves Arsenal’s defensive options significantly, as he can play both as a central defender and as a right-back, providing valuable versatility to Mikel Arteta’s squad. With this reinforcement, Arsenal will be aiming to compete for the Premier League title once again after falling short in the previous campaign.

Despite the possibility of joining Manchester United, Timber’s brother has stated that Jurrien is living his dream at Arsenal, suggesting that he is excited about his new opportunity with the North London club.

He said via FC Update:

“It took quite a while, but Jurriën really wanted to go to Arsenal and it was also very positive the other way around, so there was always confidence that it would work out. He has now taken his dream step, I am very happy with that, because he worked hard for it,”

    Marco Van Basten is a legend in Holland, seems the kid has a steely determination to join Arsenal against the legend wishes.

    Have seen this kid in action several times before joining Arsenal. He formed a solid defensive partnership with Martinez while lifting the big jug in Holland.

    What makes Timber dangerous is how good he is at different from of passing, it is believed he’s in the top one percent of defenders in the world in that regard, think this to a great deal is influencing the gaffer decision on Raya.

    Already he’s far ahead in terms of sheer appreciation.
