Arsenal has signed Australia midfielder Kyra Cooney-Cross.

The 21-year-old made an impression at the Women’s World Cup this summer, starting all seven Matildas matches as they finished fourth on home soil.

Cooney-Cross joined Hammarby from Melbourne Victory in 2022 and appeared in 30 games, including helping the team win the Swedish Cup last season.

“Arsenal just felt right to me as soon as I heard about the interest,” she explained.

“I’m excited to experience the atmosphere at Emirates Stadium in front of a large crowd for our first game there this season.” I can’t wait to get started and contribute to our collective success.”

Cooney-Cross joins other Australians Steph Catley and Caitlin Foord in Arsenal’s squad, where she has 39 caps.

“Kyra is one of the best young players in world football, and we are delighted to have brought her to Arsenal,” stated manager Jonas Eidevall.

“Her passing ability and explosiveness allow her to affect games in ways that you rarely see from such a young player, so we firmly believe she will be an excellent addition to our midfield, now and in the future.”

Cooney-Cross joins Arsenal as the club’s fifth acquisition of the summer window, following Amanda Ilestedt, Cloe Lacasse, Alessia Russo, and World Cup champion Laia Codina.
