Arsenal Women have signed Sweden striker Stina Blackstenius and Austria defender Laura Wienroither.

Blackstenius who will wear the No 25 shirt  joins as a free agent after leaving Swedish club BK Hacken, while Wienroither who will wear No 26  signs from Hoffenheim.

Blackstenius was part of the Sweden squad that won silver at the Tokyo Olympics last summer and the 2016 Games in Rio, while she also helped her country beat England in the third/fourth place play-off at the 2019 World Cup.

The 25-year-old – who was wanted by a number of clubs, including Manchester United – has won two Swedish titles and three Swedish cups, while she was also the top scorer in Sweden last year.

Blackstenius told Arsenal’s website: “It feels amazing to be here. I’m so happy to join such a big and great club like Arsenal.

“I got a really good first impression about this club. They play really good football and I wanted to be a part of that. I feel like I can become a better player in this environment.”
