Stina Blackstenius exclusive: Sweden striker ‘ready for new challenge’ at Arsenal Women after joining this month

Stina Blackstenius was one of the most sought-after transfer targets of the January window, but having signed for Arsenal, the Sweden striker is mainly focused on being “a better player”.

“I just went for it,” Blackstenius tells Lynsey Hooper in an interview for Sky Sports, addressing her decision to move to the Women’s Super League.

Having let her contract expire at Swedish club Hacken, she picked Arsenal from one of many suitors. “I get a really good impression from Arsenal as a club and everything just felt good when I took the decision,” she said.


“The WSL is one of the most attractive leagues right now because it is a really competitive league to be in.

“I was out playing in France a couple of years ago [Blackstenius spent two seasons at Montpelier before returning to Sweden] but then I felt maybe I wasn’t ready to take that step.

“But now having been [back to] Sweden, I thought I was ready for a new challenge now.”


Sunday 23rd January 6:00pm


Kick off 6:45pm


Blackstenius joins a number of fellow Swedish players in the WSL, including Magdalena Eriksson at Chelsea and Hanna Bennison at Everton, but she did not turn to them for advice when it came to taking the next step. “I have heard so much good stuff about the league and the teams here in England, I felt like I didn’t need any!” she says.
