TIMBER FOR £30M – WILL UNITED RUIN DEAL? – Le Grove – The Arsenal Opinion Weblog


David Ornstein was as soon as once more first to the punch, asserting late final evening that Jurrien Timber was the chosen one to step into our right-side-of-defence line-up.

Timber was on the agenda for United final summer season, so there’s at all times the chance they’ll are available with a £400m to point out us who’s boss. The participant is as you’d count on from an Arteta defender. He’s an artwork signing. His passing statistics are off the scales, his motion on the ball appears extra much like Thomas Partey than a central defender, and he has loads of flex to his sport that’d enable him to bounce between centre again, proper again, and midfield.

The price appears affordable proper now – the opening bid is £30m, Ajax needs £50m, we’ll doubtless land within the center. This appears like tidy enterprise. The participant is 22 years outdated, he’s capped 15 instances, and he has a really cool title. The expertise profile is sort of bang on what we search for – about 120 video games of expertise. Price noting the robustness ingredient as nicely – 4200 minutes this season, complimented by 3200 the season earlier than.

Rugged, technically gifted, and taking part in for a aspect that’s of an attractive soccer mindset.

Let’s see if we are able to escape this take care of no drama.

There’s additionally information from loads of sources suggesting we’ve gone again in for spherical 2 with Declan Rice with a quantity we all know they’ll say no to. I actually don’t get this a part of the sport. Why do golf equipment piss round with fax after fax versus simply getting on the cellphone and getting he deal achieved as quick as potential? Once more, there have to be a motive, so I’ll depart it at that.

Key piece of information: Declan solely needs Arsenal, so it’ll get achieved, and I’d think about Arteta is pressuring Edu and Garlick laborious to verify the participant is in place for Day 1 of preseason.

Exit rumblings have been a bit slower which surprises me, contemplating the treasures we’ve got at our disposal.

There are tales that we’re making an attempt to maintain Kieran Tierney on the membership, although I’d think about it is a fake rumor extra aimed toward suitor golf equipment making an attempt to get their grubby fingers on him. Swapping out KT for Cancelo is my dream, however we’ll see.

Eddie Kreuger has additionally entered the Transfers OUT group chat. Brentford is , and I’ve little question West Ham can even be taking a look at him. He’s now Premier League confirmed, golf equipment have seen what he can do when given a run, and I’m positive lots shall be .

Larger query right here is, what can we do with Balogun? He’s a Hale Ender, he’s had a TAKE NOTICE OF ME season in France, and now he’s an American, scoring a shocking aim towards Canada the opposite evening. Will we ship him out? Or give him the Saliba remedy? My guess is the analysts at Arsenal have a warmer take than I might muster — however let’s be actual right here if we had been signing a participant referred to as Flo Balogun from Ligue 1 who scored that many targets at 21, we’d be VERY excited.
