Nathalie Björn is one of three Sweden internationals recruited by Everton in the summer of 2021.

An experienced defender who has years of her career still ahead of her, Björn made her first club move outwith her homeland when she joined the Blues in July and has quickly settled into life in the Barclays FA Women's Super League.

Considered as one of the best defenders in Europe, Björn has competed at the highest level having played in the UEFA Women's Champions League during her domestic spell in Sweden.

Internationally the Everton number five has represented Sweden at the 2019 FIFA Women's World Cup where she helped the side to a third placed finish, and secured a silver medal in the delayed Tokyo 2020 Olympic Games.
