Arsenal Football Club is reportedly eyeing Barcelona Femeni star Laia Codina as a potential defensive reinforcement. The Gunners’ interest in the 23-year-old Spanish center-back has surfaced, and it could bring about significant changes for both teams.

According to a recent report by Tim Stillman, Arsenal is actively considering the addition of Laia Codina to their defensive roster. The Gunners are keen on reinforcing their backline after the unfortunate injuries to Williamson and Rafaelle’s departure to Orlando Pride, and they are eyeing Laia Codina as a serious contender for a replacement.

Laia Codina’s talents on the field have not gone unnoticed, as her defensive skills have been on full display while representing FC Barcelona Femeni, and her current participation in the FIFA 2023 Women’s World Cup as part of the Spanish national team in Australia and New Zealand has been going quite well as well.

The young center-back’s potential addition to the Arsenal squad would provide valuable depth to their defensive lineup, alongside Amanda Ilestedt, who has been shining and having an amazing campaign with the Sweden national team in the same World Cup.

While the transfer window remains open, further developments on this potential transfer will be made known. Should Arsenal’s interest in Codina become a formal pursuit, it could present a tempting opportunity for the Spanish defender. Her potential departure from Barcelona Femeni could open up new avenues for her personal growth.
