Emily Fox signs for Arsenal

Emily Fox joins the club

We are delighted to confirm the signing of United States international defender Emily Fox on a permanent transfer.

The 25-year-old right-back joins us following a spell at North Carolina Courage in the National Women’s Soccer League in the United States, where she made 19 appearances after joining in January 2023. 

Prior to her time with North Carolina Courage, Emily spent her first two seasons in the professional game at Racing Louisville, having represented North Carolina Tar Heels at college level.

Emily made her senior debut for the United States national team in 2018 and has won 39 caps for her country in total. She was part of the squads that won the CONCACAF Women’s Championship in 2022, as well as the SheBelieves Cup in 2022 and 2023. Emily also represented the USA at the 2023 FIFA Women’s World Cup, starting all four of their matches during the competition.

“It feels amazing to have signed here,” said Emily. “When I think of Arsenal, I think of excellence, I think of a global organisation, I think of family. I think of pushing the standards of football and especially in the women’s game. It’s a huge honour to get the opportunity to represent this club and I’m excited to get started and play in front of our supporters.”

Head coach Jonas Eidevall said: “We’re delighted to bring Emily to Arsenal and I’m sure our supporters will join me in welcoming her to our club. Emily has shown impressive development over recent seasons and her strengths in both phases will make her an important addition to our squad. At international level, the experience she’s built up gives her an excellent foundation to make the transition to English football. Welcome, Emily!”

Director of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said: “Emily is an experienced international defender and we are very pleased to have added her to our squad. Having spent time tracking Emily’s career to date, we believe she has all the tools to integrate into the environment here at Arsenal and make a big contribution to us achieving our goals.”

Emily will wear the number 2 jersey here at Arsenal.

The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
