Arsenal Ladies have signed Spain international Natalia Pablos Sanchon from Bristol Academy.

The 29-year-old forward, who played under Gunners boss Pedro Martinez Losa at Rayo Vallecano Femenino, scored nine goals in 19 appearances last season.

"Natalia is a player I know very well," Losa told the Arsenal website.

"She was a natural goalscorer in Spain and she has proven she can score in England too. She has a great character and will add a lot to our team."

Natalia scored over 300 goals in 12 seasons with Rayo Vallecano, captaining the Superliga club to three league titles and the Spanish Cup before joining Bristol Academy ahead of the 2013 campaign.

The Spaniard is the second player to move from the West Country to London this month, after defender Jemma Rose joined Arsenal last week.
