Liverpool announced the signing of Finland international right-back Emma Koivisto in July 2022.

The 27-year-old Finland international joins the Reds after 18 months with fellow Barclays Women’s Super League club Brighton & Hove Albion Women.

Koivisto previously enjoyed three successful years with Gothenburg in Sweden, where she left as a league champion, a feat she also achieved with FC Honka in her native Finland.

A graduate of Florida State University in the USA, Koivisto is a long-established international and is part of the Finland squad for the Women’s Euro 2022.

Welcoming his first new signing of the summer transfer window, LFC Women manager Matt Beard said: “Emma will first of all bring versatility as she has played in numerous positions while at Brighton.

“Left-back, right-back, she’s played wide, but we see her best position as the wing-back position.

“She’s a good one-v-one defender, technically she’s very good on the ball, very athletic, quick and can get up and down. I just think the way that we play, she’s going to fit in perfectly with her attacking attributes.”
