Liverpool accept Arsenal bid for Nigerian star

According to reports, Liverpool Ladies have accepted Arsenal Ladies’ offer to sign Nigeria international Asisat Oshoala.

The Reds confirmed on their official website on Tuesday that they had accepted a bid for the striking superstar, who has begun to emerge as one of the finest female footballers in the game today.

According to reports in Nigeria, the striker—who was named African Womens Player of the Year in 2014—will discuss personal terms with the Gunners, and thrash out the small print of the contract, before deciding whether she will swap life in Merseyside for a switch to London.

A statement on the Liverpool website announced the acceptance of the offer with the following statement: “Liverpool Ladies can today confirm that the club has reluctantly accepted a bid from Arsenal Ladies for Asisat Oshoala.

“After the Gunners activated a clause in the Nigerian international’s contract, the striker will now discuss personal terms with Pedro Martinez Losa’s side.

“The deal is also subject to the 21-year-old being granted a work permit ahead of the 2016 season.”

The 21-year-old moved to Liverpool from celebrated Nigerian side Rivers Angels in 2015, having made her Nigeria debut years earlier.

Oshoala top scored at the 2014 Fifa U-20 Women’s World Cup, and was also named the best player in the tournament, however, she struggled to truly make an impact at last year’s Women’s World Cup, as Nigeria were dumped out in the first round.
