Arsenal are advancing on personal terms for Ajax defender Jurrien Timber, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano.

Manchester City’s Rice bid incoming
Manchester City are preparing a bid for West Ham United captain and Arsenal target Declan Rice, football.london understands.
The Gunners have made rice their priority target for the summer transfer window and they have so far seen two offers for Rice rejected by the Hammers. The north London outfit had a first bid of £80million plus at least £10million in add-ons rejected last week for the England international before another offer, which remained under West Ham’s £100million asking price, was turned down on Tuesday.
Now, Premier League champions City have entered the race to sign the England international, with Pep Guardiola’s side preparing to make an offer. It remains to be seen what the player’s preference is but he has previously spoken about his love for living in London.
Rice Open to Move
According to transfer guru Fabrizio Romano, Rice is also open to any move from City, a blow for Arsenal who will be desperate to land their man ahead of Pep Guardiola’s side.
Writing on Twitter, Romano said: “Manchester City have decided to bid for Declan Rice after calling West Ham last Friday to be informed #MCFC Man City also checked player’s side — understand Rice is open to any move so deal depends on the clubs now.
“Arsenal, planning to bid again since last week.” At the end of June, the talented midfielder will be into the final 12 months of his contract at the London Stadium.
