Barcelona have signed Nigeria striker Asisat Oshoala on a permanent deal from Dalian Quanjian.
The 24-year-old initially joined Barca on a six-month loan deal in January following the postponement of 2019 Chinese Women’s Super League.
She went on to establish herself in the team with eight goals after 11 games in all competitions.
The Nigeria international was in fine form for Llius Cortes’ side in the Liga Iberdrola and Uefa Champions League with her attacking prowess.
Her impressive performances convinced the club to hand her a two-year contract that will keep her in Catalonia until June 2022.
Oshoala was part of Barcelona’s fairytale run to the Uefa Women’s Champions League final and scored the consolation goal in their 4-1 loss to Lyon in Budapest.
Her Champions League final appearance and goal saw her made history in the elite European competition.
“Asisat Oshoala and FC Barcelona have linked a new contract until June 30, 2022, after the agreement for transfer from the club on the 1st of July between Dalian Quanjian and Dalian club,” the club announced on its website.
