French international goalkeeper set to leave Arsenal this summer

Goalkeeper Pauline Peyraud-Magnin will leave Arsenal when her contract expires this summer according to reports by French media outlet L’Equipiere.

The 28-year-old French international stopper joined The Gunners in summer 2018 for an undisclosed fee from European champions Lyon.

This season has seen Peyraud-Magnin share the goalkeeping duties at Arsenal with Austrian international Manuela Zinsberger with the latter having made more appearances in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League. With Peyraud-Magnin’s contract up at Meadow Park this summer, reports in the French media have indicated that the player will be moving on.

Peyraud-Magnin is thought to have several offers on the table for her services but the player is not said to be set to return to France despite recent rumoured interest from Bordeaux.

The keeper started her career with hometown club Lyon where she was largely used as a deputy before Peyraud-Magnin enjoyed more fruitful spells with Issy, AS Saint-Etienne and Marseille. The player returned to Lyon for a brief second stay in 2017 before joining latest club Arsenal.

During her time in England, Peyraud-Magnin won the Barclays FA Women’s Super League with Arsenal while she was twice a runner-up in the FA Women’s Continental League Cup. The player kept nine clean sheets in 16 league outings for The Gunners.
