New CHELSEA FC signing Mayra Ramirez has opened up and confirmed that she has joined the Blues to help the club win everything.

Ramirez joined Spanish side Sporting de Huelva in July 2020 and established herself as a key figure in the club’s attack over the following two seasons. Her form earned a move to Levante.

She handled the transition with ease. Last season in Liga F, Ramirez scored 14 goals and registered a further 11 assists. This term – before her switch to west London – she had struck six times in seven matches.

We have been keen on signing a striker in this window after Sam Kerr suffered an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury during a warm weather training camp in Morocco earlier this month.

She signs for a reported British record transfer fee of £384,000 plus £42,000 in potential add-ons, and the striker has admitted that she is hoping to win everything that she possibly cant with the club

‘It’s always about the collective,’ she explains after pulling on a Chelsea shirt for the first time. ‘I want to help the team win every competition we’re in this season. It’s about achieving the objectives of the club.

‘It is one of the best leagues in the world,’ she says. ‘Spain is, of course, a good league too – and Barcelona play at the highest level. But I think the overall level of the Women’s Super League is now the best.

‘So I am very excited to discover what the league is like and enter a new environment here’.

I will always give 100% and always give my best for every team I play for.

‘I feel I can bring strength, speed, and goals to the team. I am confident I can do well, help the team achieve what we want this season, and be one of the top teams – if not the best – in Europe.’

Chelsea’s manager, Emma Hayes, said: “I think everybody knows her qualities. She’s so excited to be here and we’re really, really excited to have her. Her physicality is unbelievable, it really is. She’s got so much size but presence and power and she’s quick with the ball.

‘She’s a threat in the box, she scores goals. She doesn’t speak English, so two or three of us are helping her with that. It will take a little bit of time to settle. But I’m sure she will bring a lot of qualities to our league.”
