Arsenal have announced that Dutch forward Vivianne Miedema will leave the club when her contract expires at the end of this season.

The 27-year-old Dutch forward has scored 125 goals and provided 50 assists in her 172 appearances for the Gunners but played just 13 appearances this season following her return from an ACL injury.

Sporting Director Edu Gaspar told “On behalf of everyone at the club, we thank Viv for her huge contribution towards the success of the team during her seven years with us. Viv’s goals and overall performances as an Arsenal player have been of the highest quality, and she has created so many wonderful memories for us over the years.”

Director of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said: “Since joining us in 2017, Viv has taken on a special place in the hearts of our supporters, who I’m sure will have many fond memories of her time at Arsenal. Viv leaves with our best wishes for the future after seven memorable years here.”
