News Sports: Arsenal have completed the signing of Swedish striker Lina Hurtig on a permanent transfer from Italian champions Juventus.
The 26-year-old started her senior career with Gustafs GoIF before joining Umea IK in 2012. A move to Linkopings followed in 2017, with Hurtig helping the team win the 2017 Damallsvenskan title.
The striker made his debut for Sweden in 2014 and has since made 58 caps and scored 19 goals for his country. “It’s amazing – I’m so happy to be here,” Hurtig said.
Simran Jhamat has returned to Coventry United for the FA Women’s Championship 2022/23 season. The 21-year-old now looks set to make his debut against his former club when they visit Butts Park Arena to face Coventry United in Sunday’s Championship opener.
Jhamat became the first player of South Asian heritage in Bristol Women’s history when she joined the club last year.
“I’m delighted to be joining Coventry United and can’t wait to open the scoring at the weekend against Bristol City,” said Jhamat.
