However, Arsenal are optimistic of reaching a middle ground with Ajax for the sale of the 22-year-old.

According to Fabrizio Romano, Jurrien Timber only wants a move to Arsenal as he is fascinated with the ongoing project at the Emirates Stadium side.

He also feels joining the 13-time top division champions will be beneficial for his career at this stage.

The Ajax Amsterdam academy graduate alongside Kai Havertz and Declan Rice are viewed as Mikel Arteta’s top targets this summer.

Arsenal have agreed a deal with Chelsea estimated to be about £70 million for the transfer of Havertz and he will join the North London side in the next few days.

Mikel Arteta’s side are still discussing with West Ham United for the transfer of Declan Rice, having had two bids rejected already.

The North London side are reportedly preparing a third bid, which will be closer to the £100 million offer demanded by West Ham United.

Declan Rice is also believed to be keen on joining Arsenal amid interest from Manchester City.
