Arsenal complete £38m deal for Ajax's Timber

Arsenal have signed defender Jurrien Timber from Ajax for a fee in the region of £38m.

The Gunners will pay an initial fee of just over £34m for the Netherlands international, 22, on a five-year deal, with the remainder payable in performance-related add-ons.

Timber, who came through the Ajax academy and has made 160 senior appearances for the Eredivisie club, completed his medical and finalised personal terms ahead of being unveiled.

The Dutchman has been a long-term target for Arsenal and is their second signing of the summer following the £65m arrival of Kai Havertz, with a £105m deal to sign West Ham's Declan Rice also imminent.

Timber is being signed by Arsenal as a right-back but he can also play at centre-back and has previously attracted interest from Manchester United.
