Throughout the years Arsenal have lost many players who went to the USA to study and play, starting with the one and only Kelly Smith who went to Seton Hall.
The current generation have been doing great and are playing in the NCAA tournament right now.
A right-back or centre-back, who was a key player in the Spring Series 2017. She scored the winning goal for FSU in the first round and could be a title contender as her university has a strong squad.
She is also a u-20 bronze medal winner.
Another defender who can also play in midfield who was key for the team in the 2017 Spring Series. She is currently playing for another title contender, UNC.
Another defender who plays for LSU, she scored the game-winning penalty against Boston University to send her team through to the second round.

Also in the USA and playing for Syracuse. I interviewed her during the u-20 world cup. I also spoke to Anna Patten during the World Cup about her time at FSU.
All the women have chosen to play and get a degree in the USA. They might come back to England after their senior year as the NWSL does not offer many options with the number of foreigners is limited for all the teams.
