Arsenal Women have completed the signing of Bayern Munich and Germany defender Leonie Maier. The 26-year old is a two time Frauenbundesliga winner and has also won a European Championships and Olympic Gold with Germany.
Maier joined Bayern in 2013 and is a former teammate of Lisa Evans, Vivianne Miedema, Viki Schnaderbeck, Manuela Zinsberger and Jill Roord and is an international teammate of Tabea Kemme. Maier reinforces the Gunners defence as they prepare for life back in the Champions League. She can operate across the back line but plays mainly as a full-back. Maier will represent Germany at this summer’s World Cup.
