Vivianne Miedema Is Reportedly Staying At Arsenal

Despite reports she might be joining the FC Barcelona juggernaut, a report surfaced on Thursday indicating that Dutch superstar Vivianne Miedema is close to signing an extension with Arsenal FC.

More Details

As first reported by The Athletic, the 25-year-old is close to signing a one-year extension with her club of five seasons.

Arsenal was in the running for both the Barclays English FA Women’s Super League (FA WSL) title and the FA Cup title until the latter stages of the 2021/2022 season, falling to Chelsea in both competitions.

“I really want to win titles,” Miedema told the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) after the Gunner fell short last weekend. “This year I haven’t won anything.”

Arsenal also recently signed manager Jonas Eidevall to a contract extension, which must have been enough to convince the Women’s Super League (WSL) leading scorer to commit to one more year with the club.

Miedema’s value to any club, but particularly to the 2017/2018 league winners, is easily quantifiable.

She finished this season with 14 goals and eight assists, second only to Chelsea’s Sam Kerr.

She’s also shown flexibility in her playing style, having committed this past season to drop back and serve as more of a playmaker in the attacking midfield.

If Miedema has a big move in the offing, she’s delaying it by at least one more year.

Now it’s on Arsenal to build a team around her that can break Chelsea’s three-year league winning streak and compete in European competition.
