Arsenal reach full agreement for 3rd summer signing

Arsenal’s work in the transfer market has taken a step forward on Wednesday.

As per The Athletic, Arsenal have reached a full agreement with Ajax to sign defender Jurrien Timber. The Premier League side will pay €40million (£34.3m) plus €5m (£4.3m) in largely realistic bonuses for the stopper.

As covered by 101 at the end of June, Arsenal submitted a second bid for the transfer of Ajax defender Jurrien Timber as they aimed to get the deal completed that week

It was claimed that the Gunners had already agreed personal terms with Timber on a five-year contract, while they also saw an opening offer of £30m for him turned down by Ajax, but they have now reached an agreement with the Dutch side.

With Arsenal set to sign Timber, they will have three quality first-team centre-backs who can rotate throughout a season they are set to challenge in four competitions.

The Gunners had to rely on Rob Holding and Jakub Kiwior as cover last season, with both proving they are not good enough to fill in for William Saliba or Gabriel.

Arsenal have already completed the signing of Kai Havertz from Chelsea this summer and as 101 reported earlier on Wednesday, Declan Rice has been given permission to undergo a medical and finalise personal terms with Arsenal after West Ham agreed to the terms of a transfer.
