Timber's Injury Update.

Arsenal defender Jurrien Timber is set for an extended spell on the sidelines due to an anterior cruciate ligament injury he sustained during his Premier League debut against Nottingham Forest.

The Dutch defender, who was signed for £38 million during the summer by Mikel Arteta's team, suffered the injury in the 50th minute of Saturday's 2-1 victory over Nottingham Forest. He was subsequently substituted for Takehiro Tomiyasu.

The 22-year-old requires surgical intervention for his injury. Although Arsenal has not specified a timeline for his recovery, the club has confirmed that he "will be out of action for a period of time."

In response to the unfortunate news, Timber conveyed 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."

Prior to his appearance against Forest, Timber had made two senior appearances for the Gunners after his transfer from Ajax. His first appearance was in the Community Shield victory against Manchester City earlier this month.
