Arsenal leftback Zinchenko has praised new signing Jurrien Timber, claiming that the Dutch international may be better than him.
Timber joined Arsenal from Ajax in the current transfer window in a £38.5 million move.
Timber, like Zinchenko, is capable of inverting into a centre position during attacks. Timber can also play right and left fullback.
In an interview with Arsenal’s official programme, Zinchenko said:
“Maybe he is [similar], but maybe better than me. I’m sure he is 100 per cent going to show us what he can do, and will really help us.”
“I do know about him because I watched him and followed the way he played at Ajax.”
“Also, I played against him for the national team so I know about him as a player, what amazing qualities he has, and now I know him off the pitch.”
“He’s a great guy, another incredible signing for Arsenal who will help us a lot.”
