Nigerian Forward Asisat Oshoala Joins Barcelona Female Team On Loan
Super Falcons striker, Asisat Oshoala, has joined the Barcelona female team.
The 24-year-old makes the move from Chinese Women's Super League outfit Dalian Quanjian after passing her medicals on Thursday morning, before signing her contract at the Camp Nou.
The three-time African footballer of the year will now provide extra firepower for Fran Sanchez’s Primera Division second-placed side.
“This is obviously one of the best clubs in the world. The team has a great history and wonderful football mentality,” Oshoala said after putting pen to paper.
“I am excited about playing with Vicky Losada again. She’s a great midfielder, with a lot of energy and skill. I also met Fabiana in China and she helped me to make this decision.
“My goal is to strengthen the team and help them to win and make history. This is a fantastic opportunity because I’m sure something big will happen here.”
The former Liverpool and Arsenal player will wear the jersey number 20 and is in line for her debut when Barcelona host Albacete on Sunday.
