LIVERPOOL LADIES ACCEPT ARSENAL’s BID FOR STRIKER
Liverpool Ladies have “reluctantly accepted” a transfer bid for striker Asisat Oshoala from fellow Women’s Super League side Arsenal Ladies.
The Gunners have activated a release clause in the Nigeria international’s contract with the Reds.
Oshoala will now hold talks with Pedro Martinez Losa’s side but the move is subject to the 21-year-old receiving a work permit for the 2016 campaign.
Joe Allen was all smiles with his Liverpool team-mates after the midfielder scored the winning penalty to beat Stoke City and seal their place in the League Cup final.
In-form Stoke midfielder Marko Arnautovic broke the deadlock on the stroke of half-time with a close-range finish to silence Anfield.
Germany international Emre Can looked to test Stoke goalkeeper Jack Butland with a couple of long-range attempts but Liverpool failed to register a shot on target in 90 minutes. After neither side scored a winner in extra-time, Joe Allen stepped up to convert the winning spot-kick in the penalty shootout to secure a 6-5 win.
And Allen joined his fellow penalty heroes Roberto Firmino, Christian Benteke and Emre Can plus defender Mamadou Sakho for a selfie after their win.
