David Ornstein finally confirms full agreement in place for Jurrien Timber

It looks like we could be having a double unveiling as the Arsenal guru David Ornstein has now confirmed that, despite the usual delays, the transfer of Jurrien Timer to Arsenal is now fully agreed.

Despite being at a tender age, the 21-year-old has exhibited exceptional leadership qualities for Ajax and boasts an impressive wealth of experience in top-level European competitions, along with 15 international caps. Timber primarily operates as a center-back, but has also showcased his skills as a right-back and defensive midfielder on certain occasions, which is the most important thing for Mikel Arteta.

Renowned as a quintessential modern center-back, he possesses remarkable ball-handling abilities, a wide passing range, and the capacity to swiftly advance the ball from the defensive line. Consequently, numerous European clubs have been closely monitoring the talented native of Utrecht for a long time, but it is Arsenal that has managed to persuade him to join.

Welcome to Arsenal Jurrien!

  1. It’d be interesting to see whether White and Timber will play together or one of them will play in the cup competitions. I also saw Holding in the latest training photos

    1. I believe Gabriel Magalhães should start worrying about his position in the team. White and Timber will make our defence better together and separately. Timber is a versatile player just what Arteta prefers.

      1. I don’t think anyone has anything to worry about – except perhaps Rob Holding.
        Arteta will rotate the squad to keep things fresh – one of the problems of last season was tiredness and injuries which came from player fatigue.
        It would not surprise me that he brings one more defender in.

      2. I think Magalhaes will retain his position as our main left CB. Maybe ZInchenko will replace Xhaka and White will play inverted-RB

        1. Time will show, Gabriel is often exposed against top teams, and they are going against him to provoke mistakes. I like him but he need to stay calm and focused.

          1. Gabriel Magalhaes will remain as arsenal first choice left sided centre back for next season and Kiwior will be is backup and if you are worried about is mistakes then Arteta doesn’t share that with you Saliba and Gabriel are arsenal first choice centre back.

  2. This has been an excellent window for the Gunners with regards to the oncoming players. Now we need to finish it off with selling well. I still think, Edu will try to bring in some younger unknown and hungry players, maybe one or two.

    I think our squad is almost complete, Jesus is gonna prove people that he can get 25+ goals with a fully fit season.

    1. If we keep Partey, i’d say our squad is in good shape. Though i’m not as optimistic as you with regards to Jesus. Still think we need a killer foward

  3. I think they will play together in an inverted RB formation. White will start in the CB position bt move to the right side when Timber floates into midfield. Simmilar to what Gabriel does when Zinchenko steps into midfield.

    Our back 4 would be:
    Timber White Saliba *Tierney/Kiwior

    Im nt sure if Tierney will stay hence the asterisk.

  4. *IF we can get Jeremie Frimpong as well we’ll have one of the most deadliest attacking rights in the world. With Saka and Frimpong we would be unbelievable.

  5. 11 goals 7 assists in 32 games, his 1st season with us, injuries too. I mean you people don’t credit where it’s due. His all-round play is is really good.

    This guy will prove a lot wrong this season trust me

    1. I hope he does, but the PL is a different animal, more physical, faster, and more competitive.

  6. If its all done, welcome to Arsenal, Timber. I hope you do well and succeed along with Arsenal in winning many trophies. It will be a good rotation with Saliba and White and he could play in midfield as and when required.

  7. Please correct me if I am wrong, but I think recent signings from Eredivisie have usually turned out to be expensive flops.

    Antony – Huge waste of money so far
    Martinez – Started badly, but improved. Could be a solid signing
    Gakpo – Not great so far
    Sanchez – Terrible, but what do expect playing for Spurs?
    Ziyech – Brilliant at Ajax, very average at Chelsea
    Van de Beek – Has he even played for Utd yet?
    Klassen – Who?
    Bergwiin – Hot prospect before putting on a Spur’s shirt
    Depay – Came into his own once he left England
    Madueke – Too early to make a judgement call.

    Going further back there has been great successes, such as RVP, RVN, and Suarez, but overall, not a lot of success. I hope for the best for Timber, and I do think he’s in the right environment to succeed under MA.

  8. How I expect us to line up against City and top oppositions next season (3-4-3), but very fluid with the RCB stepping into midfield occasionally and either Rice/Partey keeping the team shape when we attack in numbers. There will be tweaks to other players positions. This is the most efficient formation to get our best players playing together.

    Timber/Tomi – Sali/White – Gaby/ Kiwior
    New RW – Rice – Partey/Jorg – Martin/Zinch
    Saka/Nelson – Havertz/Ødegaard/ESR
