Arsenal Women centre half Janni Arnth is set to join Arsenal’s Champions League Round of 32 opponents Fiorentina. The Dane joined the club from Swedish side Linkopings in the January transfer window, making 10 appearances for Arsenal and scoring 1 goal as they won the WSL title last season.

The 32-year old joins Serie A side Fiorentina who, funnily enough, have been drawn to play the Gunners in the Champions League next month. Janni has slipped further down the pecking order with the signing of Jen Beattie and didn’t feature in the team photocall or on the back of the programme for the Barcelona game.
There was some suggestion Janni would join Birmingham at the beginning of the window, so her exit is probably not a huge surprise. Good luck in Florence, Janni (just not on 12th and 26th September!)
