Jurrien Timber has been linked with a summer move away from Ajax, with Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester United interested.

A report from 90min claims that Jurrien Timber is a target for multiple Premier League clubs this summer. Apparently, the Ajax defender was scouted by Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester United on Sunday. The Dutch defender has a market value of €42 million.

Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester United are all looking to sign the 21-year-old at the end of the season. Timber has established himself as a key player for Ajax, and he is undoubtedly a prodigious young talent with a big future ahead of him. A move to the Premier League could help accelerate his development.

Not only would the 21-year-old get to test himself at a higher level, but he will also compete against some of the best attackers in world football. These experiences will only help him improve as a player.

Arsenal are in desperate need of a central defender. They have struggled in the absence of William Saliba. In addition, Rob Holding and Gabriel Magalhaes have been quite underwhelming. Mikel Arteta must look to strengthen his defence ahead of the next season. Arsenal will be playing in the UEFA Champions League next season, and they cannot afford to head into the competition with a vulnerable defence.

It is a similar situation with Liverpool as well. Joe Gomez and Joel Matip have been largely underwhelming this season, and both players have regressed significantly. Liverpool must look to replace them at the end of the season, and Timber would be a solid long-term acquisition.

Meanwhile, Manchester United defenders Harry Maguire and Victor Lindelof could look to leave the club during the summer transfer window owing to their lack of playing time. The two players will be hoping to play more regularly at this stage of their careers, and Manchester United might not be able to provide them with the platform.

If they decide to leave the club in the summer, Erik ten Hag must look to bring in adequate replacements. Timber would be a superb investment for the Red Devils. The opportunity to play under a Dutch manager for a big club like Manchester United could be an attractive option for Timber.

Arsenal, Liverpool, and Manchester United represent an exciting move for the Dutch prospect, and he could be tempted to move to English football in the summer. Meanwhile, Ajax will likely demand a fee in excess of his market value of €42 million.
