Arsenal defender, Jurrien Timber, is facing a lengthy spell on the sidelines after suffering an anterior cruciate ligament injury during his Premier League debut against Nottingham Forest.

The Dutch defender, a £38m summer signing for Mikel Arteta's side, picked up the blow in the 50th minute of Saturday's 2-1 win over Nottingham Forest, before being replaced by Takehiro Tomiyasu.


The 22-year-old needs surgery on the injury and while Arsenal did not give a timeframe for his absence, the club have said he “will be out of action for a period of time.”

Reacting to the news, Timber said on Instagram: “Gutted to share my injury is more serious than expected, especially after the warm welcome I've received.

“I wanted to repay you on the pitch, which will not be possible for the forthcoming period. I'm blessed with a lot of great people around me, together we will do anything to get back as soon and strong as possible.

“For now I'll be supporting our team from the stands of course. Thanks for making me feel at home in such a short period of time, see you at The Carpet.”

Timber had made two senior appearances since joining the Gunners from Ajax – the first being the Community Shield victory against Manchester City earlier this month – before turning out against Forest.
