Chelsea FC Women have completed their fifth signing of the summer in highly-rated VfL Wolfsburg forward Pernille Harder according to reports on the club’s official website.
The 27-year-old Danish international ace has joined The Blues in a reported £250,000 deal while the player has initially signed a contract at Kingsmeadow until summer 2023.
Harder follows Melanie Leupolz, Silvana Flores, Niamh Charles and Jessie Fleming in moving to the Barclays FA Women’s Super League champions this summer.
The striker netted more than a century of goals for former club VfL Wolfsburg in less than four years at the AOK Stadion. She won four FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga titles and four DFB-Frauen Pokal trophies during her time with the She-Wolves. European glory escaped her grasp though with Harder suffering two UEFA Women’s Champions League final defeats and the forward will be hoping to finally win the competition with her new club.
Harder has been capped by her country at senior level on 118 occasions while she has netted 61 international goals. She scored in the UEFA Women’s EURO 2017 final as Denmark lost 4-2 to The Netherlands in Enschede.
Chelsea manager Emma Hayes could opt to hand Harder her debut when The Blues begin their 2020/2021 campaign at Manchester United on Sunday afternoon.
