Liverpool sign Sophie Roman Haug

Liverpool have signed 24-year-old Norwegian international striker Sophie Roman Haug from Italian Serie A champions AS Roma.

She scored a total of 12 goals with five assists in 39 appearances with Roma, while also gaining more experience in the Women’s Champions League.

Haug had previously spent six full seasons with LSK Kvinner in her native Norway, winning five Toppserien league titles before her switch to Italy in January 2022.

She has played for her national side throughout the age groups and made her senior debut in 2022, securing a place in the Norway squad for the FIFA Women’s World Cup this summer.

There she completed a memorable hat-trick against the Philippines to ensure her country qualified for the knockout stages at the tournament.

Haug said: “I’m really excited to be here and I can’t wait to get started.

“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.

“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.”

Manager Matt Beard commented: “Sophie’s a player we’ve been monitoring for a few years now, even back to her time in Norway.

“She’s a fantastic goal scorer, her movement in the box is good and she can score all types of goals.

“She obviously had a really good World Cup, coming on the back of being at Roma and being part of a team which won the league.

“At 24 I think we’re getting Sophie at a really good time and she’s just what we needed, a proven goal scorer who is still hungry to continue to develop and progress her game.”
