Vivianne Miedema will leave Arsenal at the end of the season, as announced by the club today (Wednesday, May 13).

Miedema leaves the club as the WSL’s all-time leading goalscorer, netting 125 goals and providing 50 assists for the Gunners.

The Dutch forward has won one WSL title in her time at the club as well as two League Cups and one FA Cup.

If fit, Miedema will play her final game for Arsenal against Brighton on Saturday, and will say goodbye to fans at Meadow Park.

Sporting Director Edu Gaspar said: “On behalf of everyone at the club, we thank Viv for her huge contribution towards the success of the team during her seven years with us.

"Viv’s goals and overall performances as an Arsenal player have been of the highest quality, and she has created so many wonderful memories for us over the years. We wish Viv and her family the best of health and happiness for the future.”

Director of Women’s Football Clare Wheatley said: “Since joining us in 2017, Viv has taken on a special place in the hearts of our supporters, who I’m sure will have many fond memories of her time at Arsenal. Viv leaves with our best wishes for the future after seven memorable years here.”
