Arsenal’s young talent Kathrine Kuhl has embarked on a loan move to Everton for the remainder of the season.
Kathrine Kuhl aims to gain more playing opportunities, having had limited game time at Arsenal with just two WSL appearances totaling six minutes in the first half of the season. She reunites with manager Brian Sorensen at Everton, where she made her debut off the bench in a 3-0 Women’s FA Cup victory over Aston Villa on Saturday.

Kuhl said to evertontv: “It feels really good to sign for Everton. I’m really looking forward to this experience. Everton’s a big club and it’s a privilege to be here. My experience so far in the Women’s Super League has been really good. But I feel I’ve learnt a lot having come from the Danish league to England. It’s a big step. It’s an enjoyable and competitive league, and I enjoy playing here.
“Everton felt like a good opportunity for me to come and play alongside some really good players and hopefully gain some minutes.”
Kathrine Kuhl’s departure leaves Arsenal with one squad space left open
Arsenal director of women’s football Clare Wheatley said: “We’ve been impressed by Kathrine’s development during her time with us so far and this move will provide her with an opportunity to continue her progression in the WSL. Kathrine is a wonderful young midfielder and we look forward to seeing her grow over the coming months and as her Arsenal career unfolds.”
Kuhl’s loan move to Everton not only provides her with a valuable developmental opportunity but also benefits Arsenal by creating space in their 25-player squad quota. During the initial half of the season, Arsenal had reached their limit, and it was only after Noelle Maritz’s departure to Aston Villa that they could sign United States defender Emily Fox.
Additionally, with Kuhl’s move to Everton, Arsenal now have the flexibility to potentially make additional signings, offering manager Jonas Eidevall more options for the upcoming crucial months.
