Leonie Maier has joined us from Bayern Munich.
The 26-year-old defender joined Bayern Munich back in 2013 - and during her six-year spell at the club, she lifted two Bundesliga titles in 2015 and 2016.
Leonie has been capped on more than 70 occasions for Germany, helping them to win gold at the 2016 Olympics and the UEFA Women’s Championship in 2013.
"I’m very proud to be part of this amazing club," said Leonie. "It has always been a dream of mine to play abroad and I think that the Women’s Super League has developed in an amazing way for the last few years, so for me it’s a great honour to join Arsenal."
“Leoni is a talented defender,” added Joe Montemurro. “She has a great understanding of the game, and the experience of playing at the most competitive standard to match it. We’re looking forward to working with her next season.”
Everyone at Arsenal would like to welcome Leonie to the club.
