Can Arsenal Women cap a brilliant transfer window by poaching England keeper Mary Earps?

On September 14th, the WSL transfer window will close. The Arsenal women’s team has had a successful transfer window, adding Amanda Ilestedt and Laia Codina for defence and Cloe Lacasse and Alessia Russo for attack.

There is no doubt that these deals have strengthened them. Nonetheless, Jonas Eidevall has hinted that more deals will be closed between now and September 14th. Asked if Arsenal will fight for Mary Earps, who they’ve been linked with, he said, as per the BBC, “Individuals we never comment on. We remain active in the transfer market.”

There might be business to be done, but no comment on that specific individual.”

Arsenal are reportedly interested in Manchester United goalie Mary Earps. The 30-year-old is in the final year of her contract with Manchester United and could depart on a free transfer next year. The Gunners are prepared to sign her at a premium, and whether that deal will be completed next week remains to be seen.

Arsenal had already signed Russo on a free transfer from Manchester United this summer. Notably, the deal was finalised this summer after the Red Devils rejected Arsenal’s attempt to sign the striker earlier in the year.

Russo, who made her debut last week in the UEFA Champions League qualifiers, is already impressing Eidevall and his coaching team, as he admitted about her: “I think she has so many different qualities, and you see that when you see her on the training pitch as well.”

I think she’s going to fit really well into the way we play.”

She proved that with two excellent goals in last night’s Champions League match, and could prove to be the signing of the season.

It is comforting how the Arsenal decision-makers have backed Eidevall in this transfer window. I can’t wait to see how better Arsenal women will be in this coming WSL campaign, can you?

  1. It’s doubtful now that we’re out of The Champions League. It would certainly be a major coup to capture her, but she has a year left on her United contract, so we might have to break the transfer record again to get Mary now.

  2. I’m not in support of the women’s version of Maguire, i mean down below at club and a superstar at the nationals. how to reduce the too many misplaced passes which had me not in support of inverted FB tactic should be the priority, everyother thing will fall to place in our favour.

  3. I don’t rate him when against a financially and scout based assembled oppositions at clubs unlike national teams who’s selection is based on nationality and form which might not be good enough against some national teams hence why Maguire thrives against such set up he most of the time come up against at the nationals, same goes for Earps although i don’t mind we sign her but i don’t think it’s not a priority over the too many misplaced passes and dispossessions that needs to be addressed first which will in turn ease pressure on our GK’s regardless how good as it’s been for Chelsea women.

  4. Vamos.. I’m not sure, but i suspect you do not know that Mary earps is in fact a GK and not a CB.. or maybe I got your message wrong.
