Jurrien Timber's agent 'spotted' wearing Arsenal shirt in potential transfer clue

Jurrien Timber's agent 'spotted' wearing Arsenal shirt in potential transfer clue

Mikel Arteta is keen to sign the Dutch defender this summer.

Jurrien Timber's agent was spotted wearing an Arsenal jacket amid reports Arsenal have made a bid for the Ajax defender.

Timber has been the subject of mass interest from Premier League clubs including Arsenal, Liverpool and Manchester United following a series of impressive performances for the Dutch side.

On Monday evening, the Gunners' interest reportedly materialised into a bid worth £30 million. However, Ajax are expected to turn down the offer, valuing the Netherlands international at a significantly higher price.

Timber made a total of 47 appearances across all competitions last season but has been tipped to leave this summer due to Ajax's failure to qualify for the Champions League after finishing third in the Eredivisie.

He was among the spectators at Wembley for the FA Cup final between Manchester United and Manchester City on June 3 alongside his agent, adding fuel to speculation.

Indeed, that's not the only game he has attended. Timber was also present for FC Utrecht's match against Vitesse on May 19. But what was noteworthy was his agent's chosen attire.

Chilean journalist Eduardo Hagn shared a photo of Timber posing for a photo with his agent, Christopher Coffie, who wore a red Arsenal jacket displaying the traditional Gunners' cannon.

It's not the first time Coffie has been drawn into speculation, after he 'liked' an Instagram post from Fabrizio Romano confirming Kai Havertz's imminent move to the Emirates.

So, it would appear Timber's agent is an Arsenal fan, though it remains to be seen how much sway that could have in Timber's next destination, with the defender admitting he was likely to leave Ajax this summer.

He told Dutch outlet De Telegraaf in April: "A transfer is getting closer and closer, so to speak. There is a lot of concrete interest and I have made agreements with Ajax.

"Last year, Ajax asked me to stay for at least one more season and to extend my contract. As a club boy I did that with love and after the season we will review the situation."
