Liverpool sign Denmark international Amalie Thestrup

Championship club Liverpool have signed Denmark international Amalie Thestrup.

The striker has scored 32 goals in 48 games for her country. She is joining the Reds from Italian club AS Roma and has previously played for Danish side Ballerup-Skovlunde Fodbold.

She has said it is a dream come true to play in the United Kingdom.

"I'm extremely excited to be here and I can't wait to get started. 

"It's always been a dream of mine to go to the UK to play as it's a really exciting development going on with women's football and when Liverpool became a possibility for me, there was no doubt in my mind this was where I wanted to go to take the next step in my career."

Manager Vicky Jepson added she is delighted Thestrup has joined the club.

“Amalie has an impressive record as one of the top goalscorers in Denmark in 2018-19 and is joining us from Roma. She's a Danish international with youth on her side, just turning 25 in March,” she said.

“I'm delighted to welcome Amalie to the squad, she's already fit in well with the team and trained well, with outstanding results on the fitness tests.”

This comes after the club announced two other star summer signings. Both Taylor Hinds and Rachael Laws have committed their futures to the club.
