Gunners Women get Lyon goalkeeper


Arsenal have signed Pauline Peyraud-Magnin, who has won three Women’s Champions League trophies and three French Championship titles with Lyon.

The 25-year-old goalkeeper spent three years with Lyon between 2011 and 2014, during which time they won two Champions League trophies in back-to-back seasons.

She then moved on to play for Issy, Saint-Etienne and Marseille before returning to Lyon for the 2017/18 season, where she was part of the squad who won the UWCL and the Feminine Division 1 this year.

Having represented France at three different age-groups, she graduated to the senior ‘B’ in 2018, for whom she has played four times already.

Joe Montemurro told “Pauline has experienced playing against some of the best female footballers in the world. She has formed part of a squad who won three Women’s Champions League trophies and three domestic titles. As a young player, that is a huge achievement that says a lot about the quality of her skills and attributes as a goalkeeper.”
