English Super League teams, Liverpool Ladies and Chelsea Ladies are prepared to battle for the services of Super Falcons star, Asisat Oshoala, according to reports in England.
Oshoala, 20, is currently on the books of Nigerian club side, Rivers Angels but has been linked with a move to English Super League champions, Liverpool Ladies.
However, Chelsea Ladies are determined to outbid their rivals for the Nigerian star to boost their forward line.
Oshoala is one of the most sought-after players in World women’s football today. She was recently crowned the Glo/CAF Women’s and Young Player of the year.
The FC Robo product came to fore during the 2014 U-20 FIFA Women’s World Cup where she won the Most Valuable Player Award and Golden Shoe after featuring in all Falconets matches en route to the final.
She also took home the Most Valuable Player award at the 9th African Women’s Championship in Namibia but finished one goal behind compatriot, Desire Oparanozie in the highest goal scorer’s list.
