As part of his recovery process, Jurrien will be undergoing surgery in the upcoming days. Unfortunately, he will be unable to participate in matches for a certain period due to his recovery.”

The statement also underscored the unwavering commitment and expertise of the club’s medical team and staff, who will be fully dedicated to supporting Timber’s rehabilitation journey. The primary objective is to ensure that his recovery is both successful and efficient, enabling him to return to the field as soon as his health permits. This development comes at a crucial juncture as Arsenal prepares to face Crystal Palace in their upcoming fixture on Monday.
