Arsenal are said to be preparing second bid for Ajax right back Jurrien Timber in the coming days. The Gunners saw their first bid of £35 million rejected by Ajax.
With just two seasons remaining on the player’s contract and no Champions League football this season, the Netherlands player is likely to join Arsenal.
His age and profile fit Mikel Arteta’s style of play. With Champions League football now in full swing and the push for the Premier League title next season, Arsenal are looking forward to a rebuild.
Arsenal are looking confident about signing the Ajax defender, with personal terms agreed and the player expressing his intention to join the club.
The second bid is significantly higher than the original offer. It will be enough to keep Timber away from the Dutch giant.
If the deal doesn’t come through, the North London giant is ready to focus on other transfer targets in a bid to win silverware next season.
Manchester United were previously linked to Timber during Erik Ten Hag’s first season at Manchester United.
