Arsenal Move Excites Oshoala

Super Falcon striker Asisat Oshoala said signing for her childhood club Arsenal Ladies is a dream come true, insisting it was almost impossible to reject the deal.
The Nigeria International was unveiled to the media on Friday after joining from Liverpool Ladies, after seeing the back of the net thrice in 12 appearances for the Reds in her debut season in the English Women topflight.
The striker has been lined up against Birmingham Ladies in the Women’s FA Cup on Sunday and she is happy to take the time to adapt to her new surroundings ahead her debut.
“It feels like a dream come true,” Oshoala told the club website.
“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.”
“I can’t wait for the start of the season to happen,” she said. “I’m really eager for that – I just want to show what we have to the fans.

“When I came here last week, I had a very long conversation with Pedro [Martinez Losa] and he told me the goals of the club, what the club has to offer and what the club is looking to do in the future. I think I’m comfortable and happy with the dream of the club.
