Bayern Munich defender Boye completes move to Arsenal

Arsenal have completed the signing of defender Simone Boye Sørensen from German club Bayern Munich according to reports on The Gunners’ official website.

The 29-year-old Danish international moves to Meadow Park fresh off the back of winning the FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga title with Bayern Munich last season.

Boye made 15 appearances for the German club in their title-winning campaign, although she was largely used as a substitute. The player also reached the semi-finals of the UEFA Women’s Champions League with Bayern before they were beaten over two legs by Chelsea.

In joining Arsenal, Boye will link-up with head coach Jonas Eidevall once again. The pair previously worked together at Swedish side FC Rosengård between 2017 and 2018.

After completing her move to Meadow Park, Boye said “It feels really good to be here. I needed a new start and I’m grateful that Arsenal reached out to me. I’m very excited to get started. It’s been a while coming now so I’m looking forward to it.”

Despite having been in and out of the side at former club Bayern Munich, Boye was the most experienced defender to be named in the latest Danish squad. The player has 65 senior caps to her name, more than double the number of appearances of any other defender in the Danish squad.
