The defender previously worked with Arsenal’s new head coach, Jonas Eidevall, when they were both at FC Rosengard, so the pair know each other well.
“It feels really good to be here,” Simone told Arsenal.com. “I needed a new start and I’m grateful that Arsenal reached out to me. I’m very excited to get started. It’s been a while coming now so I’m looking forward to it.”
Arsenal Women head coach, Jonas Eidevall said: “Simone is an experienced defender who bring a strong attitude and mentality to the team on and off the pitch. I am sure that she will be a great fit to the squad and we are looking forward to working with her.”
Boye is also a senior Denmark international, making her debut for the Danes in 2011 and is the 20th deal Arsenal have completed so far in this window.
