Vivianne Miedema's Arsenal future hanging in the balance

Striker Vivianne Miedema looks set to depart Arsenal Women when her contract expires this summer, despite the north London club wanting to tie her down to a new deal.

The forward has previously stated a desire to win silverware, with Arsenal narrowly missing out on the WSL title this season; eclipsed by reigning champions Chelsea on the final day. 

The Gunners were 2-0 victors over West Ham on the concluding day of the 2021/22 WSL season, but needed to better Chelsea's result, who beat Man United 4-2 in their corresponding fixture.

Manager Jonas Eidevall has said Arsenal will "do everything" to keep the 25-year-old, amid interest from a host of European clubs, including Barcelona. 

"I really want to win titles," Miedema said on BBC Two. "This year I haven't won anything.

"I'm speaking with the club and Jonas [Eidevall]. I will have a couple of weeks holiday and will then make a decision."
