All-time top-scorer in the Barclays FA Women’s Super League, Vivianne Miedema has signed a new deal with Arsenal.

The Dutch international has scored 117 goals in just 144 appearances for the Gunners, since joining them from Bayern Munich in 2017.

Miedema told www.arsenal.com: “I think the most beautiful thing about the game is building something with a team and with people around you that you really want to be around.

“I do feel like I have got that at Arsenal. I feel like for me, winning titles with Arsenal will mean a lot more to me than winning them with another club at the moment. And that’s what I obviously hope to achieve with Arsenal.”

Head Coach Jonas Eidevall added: “Viv is a stellar talent and a hugely important player for this team, so it’s fantastic news that she is staying with us. As a club, our ambition is to win titles and compete at the highest level – we know Viv’s own ambitions are the same, and together we will give everything to achieve that.”

Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said: “This is an important day for Arsenal Football Club. Viv is among the best players on the planet and has shown her quality year after year in the Arsenal jersey. We have ambitious targets here and Viv will play a key role in us reaching them moving forward.”
