West Ham United have completed the signing of French international attacking midfielder Viviane Asseyi according to reports on The Hammers’ official club website.
The 28-year-old Mont-Saint-Aignan-born attacker joins the East Londoners on the back of a two-year spell with German giants Bayern Munich.
In her time in Germany, Asseyi made more than 50 appearances for Bayern Munich in all competitions. She was a FLYERALARM Frauen-Bundesliga winner with Bayern in 2020/2021 while she represented the club in the UEFA Women’s Champions League.
On the international stage, Asseyi has scored 12 goals in 55 appearances for France at senior level. She was not a member of Corinne Diacre’s 23-player squad which represented the nation at the UEFA Women’s EURO 2022.
After completing her move to West Ham United, Asseyi said “I am delighted to join West Ham United.
“It’s really good to be in England – ‘the country of football’. I’m excited to join the Club and have the opportunity to play in the Barclays Women’s Super League. It’s one of the best leagues in the world and it’s a new challenge that I’m really looking forward to.
“I spoke to Hawa (Cissoko) and she said a lot of good things about the Club. I’ve seen this first hand with Hawa – she has grown so much as a player over the last two years and I have aspirations to do the same.
“I’m very fast and I love to score goals. I’m a technical player too and I like to work hard for my teammates. I can’t wait to see what we can all achieve together.”
Asseyi is the seventh arrival of the summer at The Chigwell Construction Stadium.
