Mexican international midfielder announces Arsenal departure

Highly-rated Mexican Under-20 international midfielder Silvana Flores has announced that she is leaving Arsenal.

The player failed to feature for The Gunners’ senior side during her time with the North London club but she was heavily involved within their youth set up.

With Flores keen to test herself at senior level, the player took to her Instagram account yesterday to confirm that she is leaving Meadow Park.

 

The Canadian-born youngster grew up with football running through her blood. Her father Ruben Flores was a former Mexican professional football player while her sister Tatiana also represented Mexico at the FIFA Under-17 World Cup. The sisters both featured in the FIFA Under-17 Women’s World Cup Uruguay 2018 as Mexico made a superb run all the way to the final before being defeated by Spain.

The youngster has featured in the Arsenal senior squad on many occasions but has yet to make her senior debut. She did feature in the pre-season Emirates Cup tournament match against Bayern Munich, although she was only given eight minutes of game time.

It is understood that Flores has agreed to join Arsenal’s Barclays FA Women’s Super League rivals Chelsea, although the move is yet to be confirmed by The Blues.
