Arsenal find dream Jurrien Timber replacement

Arsenal transfer activity: The most recent press conference for the Gunners, held at the Emirates Stadium, with commentary on the Jurrien Timber, Benjamin Pavard, and Ansu Fati stories.

As a result of Jurrien Timber’s injury, Arsenal could be compelled to reenter the transfer market this summer. 

The club has confirmed that the Dutch international has suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament, leaving Mikel Arteta once again limited on defensive options.

“It’s a huge blow, especially for him having just joined the club to have the injury that he has is a huge disappointment for him, Arteta said when asked about Timber’s injury.

“Obviously for the team, it’s a big blow because we recruited him with clear intentions and what he was bringing to the team was evident, and he’s not going to be in this season for us. We have to adapt, these things happen unfortunately, and we have to move on.

“Jurrien been very good, to be honest, he’s a special character, he knows, and I think he’s started to realise the extent of the injury and the amount of time that he’s going to be out, but he’s in a good place. We are all willing to him help and we are all very close to him, but it’s going to be a long journey.”

The Gunners have two weeks to determine if they want to sign another defender, and according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, they could attempt to steal Benjamin Pavard from Manchester United.

Before the transfer window closes, the Frenchman could become an option for Arteta, according to Romano.

Arsenal’s summer spending has been praised by after sporting director Edu Gaspar enhanced all areas of Arteta’s squad.

As a result of the expenditure of over £200 million, many skeptics believed that no further agreements would be made, but this may disprove their beliefs.

Timber’s arrival was warmly received, and early indications suggested that he would make an immediate impact in the Premier League.

On occasion, injuries cannot be avoided, and it is time for the club to appraise the situation.

United is desperate for a new defender, and Pavard has emerged as the most probable candidate to replace Harry Maguire if he leaves. 

Concerning is the Red Devils’ reluctance to conclude their business, allowing Arsenal to demonstrate their seriousness by capitalizing.

Elsewhere, Arsenal are running out of time to locate Folarin Balogun a new club. 

Inter Milan and AS Monaco have already been rejected, and Tottenham, Chelsea, and West Ham have shown only a passing interest, leaving the USMNT star’s future uncertain.

Previously, it was believed that Monaco would make a second offer for Balogun, but the French club is currently in talks with Leicester City to acquire Patson Daka.

 The Zambian international will cost considerably less than Balogun, making it unlikely that Monaco will make another offer.

Fulham is reportedly monitoring his situation as the likelihood of Aleksandar Mitrovic leaving grows. 

However, Arsenal’s £50 million price tag continues to be a significant obstacle.

I assumed we would have a clearer indication of Balogun’s future in the final two weeks of the transfer window, says But now we’re here.

Arsenal’s insistence on receiving £50 million for their third-choice striker is proving challenging, as no club has come close to the asking price. 

Balogun has remained professional thus far, but if an agreement is not reached in the final two weeks, the club will confront an unwelcome situation.

A transfer to Europe has always appeared to be the most likely outcome for Balogun, but it is difficult to tell from the outside if this will occur. 

If Fulham’s interest is genuine, he may only have the opportunity to prove himself in the Premier League.
