Sophie Roman Haug leaves Roma Women for Liverpool in reported record deal

Roma Women have sold striker Sophie Roman Haug to Liverpool for an undisclosed fee believed to be the biggest in the club’s history for a signing or sale.

The Norway international spent one-and-a-half years at Roma, perhaps most notably scoring the winner in what was effectively a Scudetto decider against Juventus last season.

After 13 goals from 41 appearances for the club, Haug has now moved to the WSL with Liverpool.

She told her new club’s official website: “I feel like it was the right next step for me. I got a really good impression of the club and I believe they’re building something big here and I would really like to be a part of it.

“It’s a club with a lot of long traditions and with a lot of ambition. I really hope this season to be able to contribute with a lot of goals and I have a lot of faith that the team will do a great season.

“I’m excited to be able to play in what could be the biggest league in the world too. If we get off to a good start and get momentum, we’re going to be a tough team to beat.”

The 24-year-old only started 12 matches for Roma, since she was behind Valentina Giacinti in the pecking order up front last season.

It remains to be seen whether or not Roma will have time to bring in any fresh competition for Giacinti, who was their top scorer last season.
