Gio Queiroz signs for Arsenal

Geo Queiroz

We are delighted to confirm the signing of Gio Queiroz from Barcelona on a permanent deal.

In turn, we have reached an agreement that will see Gio spend the 2022/23 season on loan at Barclays Women’s Super League side Everton.

The 19-year-old Brazil international joins us following a loan spell at Levante last season, with the winger scoring 11 goals in 31 appearances during her time on loan.

Gio made her senior debut for Madrid CFF at the age of just 15 in 2018, amassing 14 appearances with the side from the Spanish capital before sealing a switch to Barcelona in 2020.

The winger spent the 2020/21 season with the Catalan side and was part of the squad that won the UEFA Women’s Champions League, Spanish league title and Spanish Cup before departing for Levante ahead of the 2021/22 campaign.

At international level, Gio was part of the Brazil team that won the 2022 Copa America title – alongside our centre-back Rafaelle Souza.

“I’m very excited. I know Arsenal is a great club – it’s one of the best clubs in Europe," said Gio. All of the players here are very competitive and have a lot of experience, so I’m excited to learn from them and develop. Arsenal is a club that belongs at the top and with hard work we can make sure we are there.”

Head Coach Jonas Eidevall added: “We’re delighted to have completed this transfer. Gio is an exciting prospect and we believe she has great potential. We will closely monitor her development this season and look forward to watching her progress.”

“We have been monitoring Gio for some time and are delighted to have brought her to Arsenal,” said Head of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley. “She will now spend time on loan in order to continue her progression and adapt to English football. We are confident that her time on loan will provide her with valuable experience at this stage in her development."

The transfer is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
