Ryan Gravenberch reveals he would love to have Jurrien Timber at Liverpool

Arsenal signed Jurrien Timber from Ajax this past summer, and Liverpool midfielder Ryan Gravenberch would love to have him at Anfield.

The Dutch defender was dealt a cruel injury blow on his debut, and he is sidelined for the long term. His compatriot and the new Liverpool signing Ryan Gravenberch has now revealed on Reddit that he would love to have Jurrien Timber at Anfield.

The Liverpool summer signing revealed that he is close friends with the Arsenal defender and that he would welcome the opportunity to reunite with him at club level. The two players have played together at Ajax in the past.

He said, “I would maybe go for a good friend of mine, Jurrien Timber. I played my whole life with him. He’s like a brother to me. That’s why I chose him.”

Liverpool could certainly use defensive reinforcements, and Timber would have been a quality addition for them. He could have been an upgrade on players like Joel Matip and Joe Gomez. Matip and Gomez have been quite underwhelming over the past year, and they need to be upgraded if Liverpool want to compete for major trophies.

Timber is versatile enough to operate as the right-back as well as a central defender. He could be a key player for Arsenal in the coming seasons, and Mikel Arteta will be hoping that he can return to action soon.

Timber is a prodigious young talent with a bright future ahead of him, and he will be hoping to get over his injury nightmare and prove himself in the Premier League in the coming months.

Arsenal needed to bring in defensive reinforcements during the summer transfer window, and signing Timber certainly raised expectations. The Gunners will be thoroughly disappointed with the injury blow, and it remains to be seen whether the former Ajax defender can return to action soon and help Arsenal compete for the league title once again.

The lack of depth in central defence derailed Arsenal’s title race last season, and Mikel Arteta will not want to be in a similar position this season.
