Naming Asisat Oshoala Best Striker of the season doesn’t come as a surprise as the 23-year-old has had a good career so far. She joined Liverpool Ladies in January of 2015 and on 10 February 2017, Chinese club Dalian Quanjian F.C. officially signed Oshoala. Although, in January 2016 Liverpool reported that a transfer bid from Arsenal Ladies even discussed personal terms with the London club.
Nicknamed “Superzee” by her teammates, Asisat was the top goal scorer at the 2014 FIFA U-20 Women’s World Cup.
