Asisat Oshoala hungry for success after Barcelona signing


Llius Cortes' side have secured the services of the Nigerian forward for the next three years after her earlier impressive loan spell
Asisat Oshoala is excited about her future at Barcelona after securing a permanent deal at the Catalan club, which runs until June 2022.
The 24-year-old shone brightly with Llius Cortes' ladies in her brief loan move from Chinese Women's Super League side Dalian Quanjian in January.
During her four-month loan spell, she scored eight goals in 11 outings, including Barcelona's first Uefa Women's Champions League final goal, in a 4-1 loss to Lyon two weeks ago.

"It's a great move for me and I'm delighted about it," Oshoala told Goal.
"It's an interesting journey to look up to. I'm looking forward to having a memorable season and a great time with the team Barcelona.

"I'm not promising the team a league Liga Iberdrola title but obviously I mean a better fight and toughen the team to able to challenge for titles.
"It just happened for me the way it happened in our final match against Lyon. I was happy to be able to do my job as a striker.
"It was a good day in the office for me as an individual to come off the bench and score but it was not for us the team. I still believe we could have achieved more in the final as a team."

 Despite the team's failed title bid, the forward's increasing importance to the Spanish outfit was underlined by Friday's news of her permanent deal, reportedly worth 20,000 euros.
