The 28-year-old German is reportedly wanted by PSG but there has been no confirmation of where she is likely to go at the time of writing.

Maier, a right-back, made 12 appearances for Arsenal this season in the FA WSL, including six starts. She made 13 league appearances in his first season with the same number of starts.

Arsenal are not expected to sign another right-back to replace her.

This follows from a report in France that claims Danielle van de Donk is ‘on the verge’ of a move to Lyon after turning down a contract extension with Arsenal. She last signed a deal in 2019 which expires at the end of the season.
