The 21-year-old is now expected to be out for six months, which is a major blow to his hopes of making an impact for Arsenal this season.

Timber’s injury is a major setback for Arsenal, who are already without several key players through injury.

Oleksandr Zinchenko, Gabriel Jesus, and Mohamed Elneny are all currently sidelined, and the club will now be without Timber for the remainder of the year.

The injury to Timber is also a blow to the Dutch national team, who are preparing for the World Cup in Qatar later this year.

Timber is a key player for the Netherlands and his absence will be a major loss.

Arsenal manager Mikel Arteta will now have to find a way to cope without Timber for the next six months.


The club have a number of options at right-back, including Cedric Soares, Ben White, and Takehiro Tomiyasu.

However, Timber’s versatility meant that he could also play at left-back or in central defence.

Timber’s injury is a major blow to Arsenal, but the club will have to try to remain positive and focus on the players who are available.

The team have a good chance of finishing in the top four this season, and they will need to be at their best to do so.
