German club Wolfsburg are being heavily linked with a move for Arsenal midfielder Jill Roord. The report comes from Andreas Pahlmann and Jasmina Schweimler at German site Sportbuzzer– Jasmina is very well sourced at Wolfsburg and has broken lots of transfer news involving the club- including Arsenal midfielder Dominique Janssen’s move to Germany from Arsenal in 2019.
Arsenal have been in contract negotiations with Roord during this season with her deal set to expire in 2022. The 24-year old Dutch midfielder joined the Gunners from Bayern Munich in the summer of 2019 and has scored ten goals this season- including three hat-tricks.
Much like Arsenal, Wolfsburg have a heavy Dutch contingent at the club with Dominique Janssen and Shanice van de Sanden there already and Joelle Smits and Lyn Wilms set to join this summer as well.
Ralf Kellermann, sporting director of Wolfsburg, did not comment on the report when asked by Sportbuzzer, saying, “We will not comment on transfer rumours in the week before the important game against Bayern.”
Meanwhile, reports also surfaced in Switzerland over the weekend suggesting that Malin Gut may return to Grasshopper Zurich this summer having failed to settle in London since joining Arsenal last summer. The 21-year old is seen as very much a future signing for the Gunners. Personally, I can’t comment on the legitimacy of these rumours just at the moment.
