We are delighted to announce that Switzerland international Malin Gut has joined us from Grasshopper Club Zürich.
The 19-year-old midfielder started her career at FC Zürich before making the switch to Grasshopper Club Zürich in 2019.
Malin made her senior debut at the club at just 15 years of age, and during her five year tenure won the Nationalliga A and the Swiss Women’s Cup three times each.
Since joining Grasshopper Club Zürich, Malin has made 23 appearances as a versatile midfielder, scoring six goals.
Malin has also featured eight times for her national side, often starting alongside current Arsenal midfielder Lia Wälti.
“It’s a very big honour for me to be able to play and represent this club in the future,” Gut told Arsenal.com. “From the beginning it felt like everything fitted perfectly. I talked to Joe a lot which helped because he was really able to convince me from the first second and I felt that he’s the kind of coach I really want to play with. I’m very, very excited to play with the Arsenal shirt for the first time.”
“She’s a player that I noticed about a year ago now in the Swiss national team that is very, very mature for her age,” said head coach Joe Montemurro. “She’s someone that I think is really going to flourish in our environment around the players that she’s going to be around. She’s a very exciting prospect for the club.”
The deal is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
