The Arsenal striker Vivianne Miedema has spoken to several clubs regarding her future, including Paris Saint-Germain and Barcelona. The 25-year-old’s contract runs out in the summer and she is free to negotiate with other clubs.
Miedema has been with Arsenal since 2017 and the club sit top of the Women’s Super League but the Netherlands international says that winning the Champions League is a key priority for the next few years.
“In the coming weeks I have to get a certain feeling for the right club,” she told the Dutch newspaper AD, where she will be a columnist. “[But] the door to Arsenal is definitely not closed yet.
“I want to win the Champions League. I want to get the most out of it [her career]. That means I may have to take the next step. I’m 25 and that’s still quite young, but I’ve been around for a while.”
Miedema is regarded as one of the best footballers in the world and will be a target for the top European clubs. She has more than 100 Netherlands caps and will lead their line at the Euros this summer.
“The years to come should officially be my peak years,” she said. “I have to spend it somewhere at a club that best suits my ambitions.” She added, however, that she was very happy in London, which is now her second home. “Life is good here. And I know myself: I have to be happy off the pitch to perform on the pitch.”
