Kim Little is hoping to represent Team GB at the Tokyo Olympics next summer.
“I think for anyone who can be involved or potentially selected it’s something we’ve thought about, naturally,” Little, 29, told Reuters at Visa Europe’s headquarters in London.
“It’s such a momentous occasion to play in or be a part of an Olympics, especially having been part of one in 2012. It’s something I think about and I’m conscious of.
“But I know to get there I need to work extremely hard and push myself as much as I can to be playing at the best level to be given a chance.”
With England finishing as one of the top three teams at the 2019 World Cup they confirmed their place at the 2020 Olympics and, as such, Team GB can compete in Tokyo.
Little has four goals and two assists in nine league games this season, helping Arsenal take top spot for Christmas while they bomb on in the Champions League, hoping to win it.
“I think that should be an aim for all English clubs that are in the Champions League. Obviously, this year, it’s us. We’ve made it to the quarter-finals and I can’t wait to be a part of that,” she said.
“But, yes, I think that’s the next step for English teams to close that gap towards teams like Lyon and Wolfsburg and obviously the Spanish teams and other French teams … make the semi-finals or final and win it on a consistent basis and that’s what our aim is.”
