Quinten Timber: A Rising Star Attracting Premier League Attention

Olly Dawes from HITC has shed light on a burgeoning talent in Dutch football, Feyenoord’s midfielder Quinten Timber, who is drawing significant interest from several Premier League clubs, including Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.

Quinten Timber’s Impressive Campaign

At 22 years old, Timber has had an outstanding season with Feyenoord, enhancing his reputation as a key performer. His contribution of six goals and six assists in Arne Slot’s side has not gone unnoticed. These impressive stats build upon his first season, which helped Feyenoord claim the Dutch title. It’s no surprise that English clubs are keeping a close watch on this talented player.

Arsenal and Tottenham’s Interest

Arsenal’s interest in Timber can be traced back to last season, sparked by their Dutch scouts while observing Timber’s twin brother, Jurrien, who joined Arsenal from Ajax. Now, Tottenham Hotspur is reportedly among the clubs closely monitoring his progress, indicating a potential bidding war in North London for his services.


Newcastle United in Mix

Adding to the list of admirers, Newcastle United have also shown an interest in Timber. Their focus on Feyenoord, initially due to their loan star Yankuba Minteh, has broadened, with scouts delivering glowing reports on Timber as well as teammates Lutsharel Geertruida and Santiago Gimenez. This interest from Newcastle adds another dimension to Timber’s burgeoning appeal.

Timber’s Journey and Growing Influence

The Timber twins left Feyenoord for Ajax at the age of 13, embarking on different paths. While Jurrien established himself at Ajax, Quinten moved to Utrecht before Feyenoord brought him back to Rotterdam. After a relatively subdued first season, Timber’s emergence this season has been nothing short of remarkable, stepping up in the absence of Orkun Kokcu. His former teammate Mohamed Taabouni has described him as ‘very talented’, a sentiment echoed by many observers of Dutch football.

The prospect of reuniting with his brother at Arsenal may be alluring for Timber, but the chance to join Tottenham and make his own mark in North London is equally compelling. As he continues to develop, his decision this summer could be a pivotal moment in his career.
