Chelsea sign Pernille Harder
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 1 Sep 2020
 
Chelsea Football Club Women are delighted to confirm the signing of Danish attacking player Pernille Harder on a three-year deal.
 
The 27-year-old joins from German side Wolfsburg ahead of the 2020-21 Barclays FA Women's Super League season which sees her new club begin away to Manchester United on Sunday.
 
Harder has spent the past three-and-a-half years playing for Wolfsburg and it was there she established herself as one of Europe's top footballers. She was named UEFA Player of the Year in 2018.
 
Indeed, it was a trophy-laden stint with the leading club in the Frauen Bundesliga, as Harder won the domestic Double in each of her four campaigns at the AOK Stadion, twice finishing as the top scorer in the German top flight. Her tally of 27 in the coronavirus-affected 2019-20 season was the highest by any player in the Frauen Bundesliga since 2010.
 
While there is so much more to her game than goals, as evidenced by her ability to play in any position across the front of the pitch or in an attacking-midfield role, Harder boasts a scoring record at the top level of European football that would be the envy of any striker.
 
At Wolfsburg she found the net 103 times in 113 matches, having previously scored 85 goals in 109 appearances for Linkopings in Sweden, while she averaged better than a goal a game at Skovbakken in her homeland. Add in 25 Champions League goals from 28 games and it is clear Emma Hayes has added another lethal finisher to her already prolific attacking options.
 
Chelsea FC Women manager Emma Hayes told the club's website: "Pernille is one of the best players in the world. Her record at Wolfsburg and Linkopings, as well as internationally with Denmark, shows how valuable she has been to her teams.
 
"She is a fantastic team player who wants to take her game to the next level. She chose Chelsea as the club that can push her to that level. She can play for any team in the world, but she chose us.
 
"She chose the players, the staff, the environment, the playing style. You can't get a bigger compliment than that from one of the best players in the world."
