Arsenal, Tottenham and West Ham are among the teams interested in signing Vittsjo defender Charlotte Grant, according to BBC journalist Emma Sanders.
The Australian international confirmed a couple of weeks ago that she would be leaving Vittsjo at the end of her contract. Reports in the Swedish media had already claimed that a move to the Women’s Super League was on the cards and Sanders has now revealed the clubs who are competing for her signature:

Grant has spent the best part of two and a half years in Sweden. She originally joined Rosengard from Adelaide United in April 2021 before moving to Vittsjo on loan just over a year later.
After finalising a permanent switch in January 2023, she was a regular starter for Vittsjo, helping them to a 5th place finish in the Damallsvenskan table. Grant is now seeking a new challenge following the end of the 2023 campaign.
Grant’s performances for Australia have also caught the eye
The left-back was handed her first cap by the Matildas in September 2021, just five months after making the switch to play in Europe. She came on for the last 25 minutes of the 3-2 friendly defeat to the Republic of Ireland.
Grant has subsequently made 21 appearances for Australia, with her only goal coming against England during a 2-0 win over the Lionesses back in April earlier this year.
She had a rather disappointing World Cup
Despite being selected in the squad for the tournament in the summer, the 22-year-old only made one very brief appearance for Australia.
Grant came on in the dying seconds of the 4-0 victory over Canada in the group stages, replacing midfielder Katrina Gorry.
