Sam Kerr: Australia international joins WSL leaders Chelsea


Sam Kerr, widely regarded as one of the best strikers in the world, has joined Women’s Super League leaders Chelsea. She is the all-time leading scorer in the National Women’s Soccer League in the US and the Australian W-League.

Kerr, 26, has signed a two-and-a-half-year deal and is available for the second half of the season from January. “The fact she chose Chelsea when she could have gone to any club in the world is a testament to the players and the staff here,” said boss Emma Hayes.

Former Chicago Red Stars and Perth Glory player Kerr scored five goals at the World Cup this summer, leading Australia to the last 16. Kerr said: “The WSL is the best league in Europe. I want team success and I don’t want it to come easy.

“I feel Chelsea have been building something special over the years and I want to be a part of that – I want to lift some trophies.”
