Arsenal have made a bid for Swedish forward Lina Hurtig from Juventus. The Gunners have been quiet in the market this summer with only goalkeeper Kaylan Marckese arriving this summer.
They have shopped for other targets, including Brazilian wide forward Geyse, who eventually went to Barcelona. While midfield target Jelena Cankovic looks set to join Chelsea despite Arsenal also meeting her release clause from Rosengard.
Reports emerged over the weekend that an English club had made a sizeable offer for Hurtig, who can play all across the front line. Arsenal is the club that has made the offer.
Jonas Eidevall has been on the lookout for a versatile forward to bolster his attack after the departure of Nikita Parris to Manchester United and his compatriot Hurtig fits the bill.
She has a contract with Juventus, now coached by former Gunners boss Joe Montemurro, until 2024 but is understood to be keen on the move with talks between the clubs expected next week. Hurtig has 19 goals in 58 caps for Sweden.
