Arsenal complete Lina Hurtig signing

Lina Hurtig signs contract

We are delighted to confirm the signing of Lina Hurtig on a permanent transfer. The 26-year-old Swedish forward joins us from Italian champions, Juventus.

Born on 5 September 1995, Lina began her senior career with Gustafs GoIF before joining Umeå IK in 2012. A move to Linköpings FC followed in 2017, with Lina helping the team to the 2017 Damallsvenskan title.

Lina swapped Sweden for Italy in 2020 with a move to Serie A champions Juventus, where she won two league titles, two Italian Super Cups and one Coppa Italia during her time in Turin.

She made her full Sweden debut back in 2014, and has since won a total of 58 caps and scored 19 goals for her country.

“It feels so great – I'm very happy to be here,” said Lina. “I've always, always wanted to play in England, and I've always been interested in English football, so it’s super exciting for me to be here. I know Arsenal are a great club, with great players and lots of quality, so I think I will enjoy it here.”

Head Coach Jonas Eidevall added: “Lina is an excellent forward who will bring power and dynamism to our game. She has shone in the Champions League and international tournaments and we are delighted that she will be lining up for Arsenal moving forward.”

Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said: “Lina was a key target for us this summer so we are pleased to have completed this signing. She is exactly the right profile of player for Arsenal and will add quality and experience to our squad.”  

The transfer is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.

Ellen White announces her retirement

Ellen White playing for Arsenal

Former Arsenal striker Ellen White has announced her retirement from competitive football.

White began her record-breaking career at Arsenal after being scouted at as an eight-year-old. She spent eight years in our youth teams before moving to Chelsea in 2005.

She returned to Arsenal and Meadow Park five years later, in time for the inaugural WSL season in 2011. During her three years here, White made 38 WSL appearances and scored 11 goals, helping us towards three consecutive league titles and two FA cups. 

White is the Lionesses' greatest ever goalscorer with 52 goals – only one off Wayne Rooney's record total for the men's side. She has attended three World Cups for England and earlier this summer, she was a key member of the squad that won the 2022 UEFA Women's Euros.

We wish Ellen all the best in her retirement.
