23 year old Norwegian international Frida Maanum joined Arsenal in July 2021 from Swedish side Linköping, Frida made her debut for Norway at just 17 years of age and has since picked up more than 50 caps. Maanum is able to push forward and progress play with her tidy footwork and positive attacking runs.

24 year old English international Georgia Stanway joined Bayern Munich in May 2022 from Manchester City (she was City’s record goalscorer). Georgia represented England at various youth levels and is widely considered one of the best attacking midfield players of her generation, playing a key part in the Lionesses Euro 2022 win last summer.
