Jurrien Timber took part in an additional first team practice prior to Arsenal’s Premier League encounter with Bournemouth on Saturday.

After sustaining an ACL injury in the first game of the season, the Dutch defender has been sidelined for the entire campaign.

After playing 71 minutes in Sunday’s 2-0 victory over Liverpool for Arsenal under-21, Timber resumed his recuperation.

Timber said, “It’s hard to put into words how I feel. It’s been eight months, it’s been a long time.” in reflection on his return. Even now, it feels strange to be outside, even though it feels amazing. However, I consider myself fortunate and happy to be playing, and it feels good to score a goal.

“I am eager to play in the remaining games of the season, which is almost over. I hope to be a member of the team for these last few games.” I’ve already received texts from the guys, so it should be enjoyable.

Prior to Saturday’s game against the Cherries, the former Ajax player will have a last-minute fitness test. Arteta is optimistic that his summer acquisition will make the trip roster.

“After the training session on Saturday, we must make that decision,” stated Mikel Arteta, the manager of the Gunners.

“He’s very close right now; I’m not sure if this is too early.”

After the match against Bournemouth, Arteta’s team will play just two league games left: on May 12, they travel to Manchester United, and on May 13, they play Everton at Emirates Stadium in the season’s final match.
