Nineteen-year-old Switzerland international midfielder Malin Gut has joined Arsenal Women from Grasshopper Club Zürich.

Capped eight times for her country, Gut made her senior club debut for FC Zürich aged 15 before making the switch to Grasshopper in 2019.

“It’s a very big honour for me to be able to play and represent this club in the future,” Gut told Arsenal.com. “From the beginning it felt like everything fitted perfectly. I talked to Joe [Montemurro] a lot which helped because he was really able to convince me from the first second and I felt that he’s the kind of coach I really want to play with. I’m very, very excited to play with the Arsenal shirt for the first time.”

“She’s a player that I noticed about a year ago now in the Swiss national team that is very, very mature for her age,” said head coach Joe Montemurro. “She’s someone that I think is really going to flourish in our environment around the players that she’s going to be around. She’s a very exciting prospect for the club.”
