We are delighted to announce that Simone Boye Sorensen has joined us from FC Bayern Munich.
The 29-year-old defender started her career with Jernlose IF in Denmark and in 2012 she attended the University of Texas at San Antonio, where she played for the UTSA Roadrunners before returning to her Danish club after the American season.
Simone signed for Danish Elitedivisionen side Brondby IF in 2013, where she played predominantly as a central midfielder and led the team to the UEFA Women’s Champions League, before eventually receiving the captain's armband.
In 2014 Simone won the Danish Football Player of the Year award for her consistent performances.
After a spell at FC Rosengård under the guidance of our new head coach, Jonas Eidevall, the Danish national joined Bayern Munich in 2019 and went on to make 32 appearances.
"It feels really good to be here," Simone told Arsenal.com. "I needed a new start and I'm grateful that Arsenal reached out to me. I'm very excited to get started. It's been a while coming now so I'm looking forward to it."
Arsenal Women head coach, Jonas Eidevall said: “Simone is an experienced defender who bring a strong attitude and mentality to the team on and off the pitch. I am sure that she will be a great fit to the squad and we are looking forward to working with her.”
The transfer is subject to the completion of regulatory processes.
