Jurrien Timber 'spotted in London with agent this month' as Arsenal submit bid for Ajax star

Jurrien Timber 'spotted in London with agent this month' as Arsenal submit bid for Ajax star

Timber has reportedly been spotted.

Arsenal transfer target Jurrien Timber was spotted in London alongside his agent earlier this month, it has been reported.

The Athletic revealed on Monday that the Gunners had submitted an opening offer of £30 million for the 22-year-old, who has established himself as a key player at Ajax in recent seasons.

Manchester United held strong interest in the centre-back, who can also play right-back, last summer as a potential reunion with manager Erik ten Hag was plotted.

According to the Daily Mirror, Timber turned down the opportunity to move to Old Trafford, telling Ten Hag that he would be staying with Ajax until at least the World Cup in Qatar.

But it has emerged that he could now join United's fierce rivals this summer, with The Athletic also claiming that Timber has agreed personal terms over a move to the Emirates Stadium.

It is unclear exactly when those terms were agreed - but it could be linked to Timber reportedly being spotted in London with his agent earlier in June.

Dutch outlet De Telegraaf (via Sport Witness) back up reports that Arsenal have indeed submitted a bid for Timber, but claim it is still far below Ajax's €60 million (around £51 million) asking price.

It is added that Timber was in London earlier this month, alongside members of his management group Forza Sports Group, his mother, and brother Quinten, who plays as a midfielder for Feyenoord.

The report claims, however, that this was not business related to Arsenal. Instead, the 22-year-old was in the English capital to watch the FA Cup final between Manchester City and Manchester United.

Unfortunately for the Dutch international, however, he was not able to watch former team-mates Donny van de Beek, Antony and Lisandro Martinez in action, as all three were injured.

Whether the trip involved any contact with the Gunners is unknown, but the centre-back could become a new Arsenal player this summer.
