Arsenal in discussion with Ajax to bring Jurrien Timber to bolster squad

Arsenal is currently engaged in negotiations to secure the services of defender Jurrien Timber from Ajax, as they aim to strengthen their squad and support manager Mikel Arteta. The club is also in talks to acquire West Ham captain Declan Rice and Chelsea forward Kai Havertz, reflecting their ambitious approach in the summer transfer window.

These discussions have been reported as “very positive,” with all parties displaying a willingness to reach an agreement. Timber, who has two years remaining on his contract, is valued at approximately €50m. There have been reports of a rejected bid, prompting Arsenal to internally assess Timber’s worth and determine a suitable payment structure. The Gunners have been monitoring Timber’s progress throughout the past season, as they seek to enhance competition in defensive positions.

In addition to Timber, Arsenal is actively pursuing deals for Declan Rice and Kai Havertz. Similar to the Timber negotiations, Arsenal is carefully considering valuations and payment structures before submitting second bids. Encouragingly, there is a sense that all three players are interested in joining the club.

Arsenal’s ambition is evident in their approach to the current transfer window, as they continue to support manager Mikel Arteta. A move for Declan Rice would likely surpass the club’s transfer record, indicating their commitment to strengthening the squad.
They also retain an interest in Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo – among others – and are keeping an eye on his situation having had two bids rejected in January.
