Chelsea Women Unveil New Signing Ashley Lawrence Photo by Harriet Lander - Chelsea FC/Chelsea FC via Getty Images

Chelsea Women have already addressed Pernille Harder’s exit with a great statement of intent by signing attacker Catarina Macario. We have now done the same in defence, replacing Magda Eriksson with Ashley Lawrence.

Lawrence arrives at Chelsea with a three-year contract after six-and-a-half years playing with Paris Saint-Germain. She won a French League title and lifted the Coupe de France twice during her time in Paris.

Not only did she play with Kadeisha Buchanan in PSG’s defence, the two also share the pitch internationally with the Canadian national team. With Lawrence’s arrival, the Blues now have three representatives for Canada in the upcoming Women’s World Cup, joining Jessie Fleming.

In terms of Lawrence’s impact on our squad, Emma Hayes is quite enthused by having a world class attacking full back who can deputize on both flanks of the pitch.

“Ashley has established herself as one of the best full-backs in the women’s game for both club and country. Her ability to get forward, her progressive play into the final third is a standout strength and she can play on both the left and right side. We’re really looking forward to having her with us.”
