Arsenal are now fearing the worst for Jurrien Timber’s knee injury after he was substituted against Nottingham Forest, according to the Daily Mail.
The Gunners now believe the Dutchman has suffered a serious injury after initial tests were carried out on him.
Arsenal’s medical team fear he suffered a significant knee ligament injury that could keep him out for months, rather than a short while.
They have yet to reveal the full extent of his injury, but there is now a feeling that he will be out for a long time.
If he is indeed out for months then the defender could miss a number of key games – including games against Manchester United and Tottenham Hotspur.
Arsenal have yet to make any announcement about Timber’s situation and will be hoping he can make a speedy recovery from his injury.
