Everton Women have signed 24-year-old Sweden forward Anna Anvegård from Rosengård until 2023.

Anvegård won the Damallsvenskan Golden Boot during the 2019 and 2020 campaigns, helped Sweden to bronze in the 2019 World Cup and will also represent her country at the Olympics.

“It feels really amazing,” she told evertonfc.com. “I’ve been talking with Everton for a few months, and it feels amazing that it’s done.

“I can’t wait to play in the best league in the world and to play for a massive club like Everton.

“It will be really amazing.”

Manager Willie Kirk commented: “Anna is a fantastic signing for Everton.

“There was a lot of competition to get her signature and it’s a big statement in terms of where we’re going as a club and how we are viewed across Europe by other players.

“Anna’s got a lot of talent in front of her and she’s developed into a really important player for Sweden.

“She’ll become a really important player for us.”
