Jurriën Timber may get the company of a fellow Dutch national team player at Arsenal

Jurriën Timber may get the company of fellow Dutch national team player Jeremie Frimpong at Arsenal. According to transfer specialist Fabrizio Romano, the offensively minded full-back from Bayer Leverkusen is on the list of potential reinforcements for the upcoming summer at the current Premier League leaders.

Frimpong is in his second season in Germany and is once again making an excellent impression in Xabi Alonso's team. 

After twelve played matches, he has already scored four goals and provided six assists for the former Manchester City and Celtic player. This makes him a key player in Leverkusen's current position at the top of the Bundesliga.

The fact that Frimpong has a limited transfer clause allowing him to be picked up for €40 million at the BayArena is also a welcome bonus for Arsenal, although there are more clubs that have him in their sights. 

He was already considered by FC Barcelona last summer, but the club ultimately chose to loan João Cancelo from Manchester City. Manchester United, managed by Erik ten Hag, has also been mentioned for some time as a potential destination for Frimpong. In addition, Spanish media report that if Alonso were to move to Real Madrid, where he has long been considered a potential successor to Carlo Ancelotti, he would want to take Frimpong with him to the Spanish capital.

It is still too early to say that Frimpong is the top candidate for Arsenal. "It won't happen immediately, but Arsenal is closely monitoring various players for that position next year," Romano reports. Additionally, The Gunners are also keeping Cancelo in mind. "He can be picked up for a lower transfer fee and is also on the list," says Romano.
