If Ryan Gravenberch and his Dutch colleagues were charged with adding another international compatriot to the expanding group at Anfield, they would undoubtedly want to recruit Jurrien Timber.
“This year, qualifying for the Champions League will be an enormous task,” said Klopp.
The defender for Arsenal, who cost £34 million when he signed, has had extremely bad luck with injuries and will now spend the majority of his time in the treatment room.
“On behalf of Sky Sports, I might choose my good friend Jurrien Timber,” the former Ajax player said on Reddit. “I’ve played with him all my life. To me, he resembles a sibling. I choose him because of this.
Sadly, the Dutchman’s chances of playing for the Gunners again before the end of the current campaign are slim due to damaged knee ligaments.
Timber, who can play all three back positions and is 22 years old, is undoubtedly one of the Premier League’s most exciting defensive prospects.
Whether the centre back would wind up playing at Anfield in the future Saying that, it’s quite unlikely!
He’s not what we’re looking for, as a right-footed center-half, so we expect our recruitment team to be searching elsewhere.
But let’s hope Timber’s recuperation goes more smoothly than anticipated and that he can make a quick comeback to the pitch before the season ends!
