The club have been active players in the summer transfer window. The 33-year-old Heath joins the likes of Mana Iwabuchi and Nikita Parris at the club, and there will be high hopes of mounting a title push in the 2021/22 campaign.

Heath will wear the number 77 shirt.

Arsenal kick off their FA Women’s Super League season at home to defending champions Chelsea on Sunday.
