Liverpool FC Women announced the signing of USA forward Katie Stengel in January 2022.

She was recently playing for Valerenga, where she won a Norwegian Women’s Cup in October.

The Florida-born player has played most of her football in America’s Nation Women’s Soccer League (NWSL) and in Australia.

She originally emerged from the American college scene, shining as she became the all-time leading goal scorer at Wake Forest and earning All-American honours three times.

She had a spell at Bayern Munich in the Frauen Bundesliga, top scoring in their title-winning season in 2015.

Returning to the US, she settled with Washington Spirit – where she played in Championship final in 2016 – before later moving on to Boston Breakers, where she played under LFC Women boss Matt Beard in 2017, and later Utah Royals.

She also enjoyed loan spells to play down under in the Australian W-League, representing the Western Sydney Wanderers and Newcastle Jets, where she finished runner-up in the Golden Boot race.

After leaving the Royals in 2020, she briefly joined Houston Dash before heading to Norway.

Internationally, she has represented the USA at U20 and U23 level, winning the FIFA U20 World Cup.

Stengel hit the ground running in 2021-22 as she netted nine goals as Beard's side won the FA Women's Championship and clinched promotion back to the Women's Super League.
