Arsenal complete signing of Barcelona forward

 Arsenal have completed the signing of Barcelona forward, who won the World Cup with Spain on a long-term contract.

Arsenal have made a significant addition to their squad by signing Spain forward Mariona Caldentey on a free transfer from Barcelona.

The 28-year-old forward brings a wealth of experience and a winning mentality to the London club, having spent a decade at Barcelona where she secured 25 trophies, including three Champions League titles. The latest of these came in May when she played a key role in Barcelona’s victory over Lyon.

Caldentey’s arrival at Arsenal is seen as a major coup for the club. The recruitment team at Arsenal identified her as a key target due to her proven track record and the opportunity to acquire her in the prime of her career. She will don the No. 8 shirt for her new team.

A contributing factor to Caldentey’s decision to join Arsenal was the increasing frequency of matches played at the Emirates Stadium by Jonas Eidevall’s side.

“This is the right time for a new challenge for me, and Arsenal is the perfect place,” Caldentey said. “What Arsenal are doing as a club is amazing – on and off the pitch. I love the way we want to play as a team and I think there’s a strong mentality building here.
