Lydia Williams, who first joined Arsenal in 2020 under compatriot Joe Montemurro, is set to join PSG on a free transfer after her contract expired.

Translated, that tweet says, “34-year-old Australian goalkeeper Lydia Williams (ex Arsenal) has signed for @PSG_Feminines for next season. #mercato #PSG”

According to Tim Stillman over on Arseblog, Williams was offered a new contract to stay at the club but the goalkeeper wants regular minutes ahead of the World Cup in Australia next year.

Williams, now 34, is currently number two at Arsenal behind Manuela Zinsberger, who joined the club the year before she arrived.
