Welcome to a brand new episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast, the number one podcast about Arsenal Women.
On this episode of the Arsenal Women Arsecast, Tim talks to Swedish journalist and women’s football expert Mia Eriksson about new signing Lina Hurtig. Mia talks about Lina’s background in Sweden before moving to Juventus, how she might fit into this Arsenal attack, her qualities and attributes and how Arsenal might benefit from her existing partnership with international teammate Stina Blackstenius. Tim and Mia also chat about Blackstenius’ first few months at Arsenal and how she might fare in her first full season in the WSL.
