Asisat Oshoala
Arsenal ladies have completed the signing of Nigerian football star, Asisat Oshoala.

The 21 year old Super Falcons of Nigeria striker, who had previously played for Liverpool ladies, where she became the first player from Africa to feature in the Women’s Super League, scoring 3 goals in in 12 league appearances, says it is a ''dream come true''.


She further said she could not turn down the chance to play for the team she has supported since she was a child.

“It feels like a dream come true,” she told Arsenal Player. “It was the team I supported when I was small. When I first started playing and watching football, I started supporting Arsenal because I love good football.

“Everyone is happy because it is a very popular club in my country. Having their own player playing for the club is a great thing. Everyone was happy about it - not just my family but football fans around Nigeria''.

Arsenal Ladies manager says the Oshoala is a great addition and is really excited to have her;
“Asisat is a fantastic talent and will be a great addition to our squad. She is quick, with excellent feet and has proven she can score goals so it’s very positive she has decided to join us''.
 
Arsenal Ladies kick off their season against Birmingham Ladies in the Women’s FA Cup on Sunday, and the former Africa footballer of the year is hoping to make an instant impact.
