Pundit heaps praise on ‘aggressive’ Arsenal star

An Arsenal player has been heavily praise for his showings in pre-season.

The player in question is Arsenal new boy, Jurrien Timber.

Timber completed a move from Dutch giants Ajax to Arsenal earlier this summer for £37.5m.

The centre-back, who can also operate at right-back, has shone in pre-season in a number of positions so far.

And with Oleksandr Zinchenko only just returning to fitness, it is expected Timber will feature prominently in the early stages of the campaign.

Now, a pundit has heaped praise on the defender for his showings in an Arsenal shirt so far.

Speaking on the Handbrake Off Podcast, Adrian Clarke has showered the 22-year-old with praise.

“I think that Timber has definitely shown enough in pre-season to show that he could be a starter. I’ve loved his attitude, there’s no fear there, no edginess or nerves, a confident boy, passes forward well. He showed at left-back that he can do what Zini does. He looks snappy, aggressive and confident in an Arsenal shirt. I would go with him ahead of Tierney or Kiwior if Zinchenko is out,” Clarke said.
