Exiled dissident Jacobo Timerman will return to Argentina Friday - two months earlier than the former newspaper publisher had previously announced, a Buenos Aires radio station reported.

''The rapid process of Argentine democratization has convinced him he can return,'' Radio Mitre correspondent Sam Glazer said in a report from New York. There was no immediate comment from Mr. Timerman, who has homes in New York, Madrid, and Tel Aviv.

Timerman was stripped of his citizenship in 1979 and exiled to Tel Aviv after serving a 30-month jail term without charges or a public trial. His book ''Prisoner Without a Name, Cell Without a Number'' was a best seller in the US.
