Liverpool sign former Tottenham and Arsenal forward Rianna Dean

The 22-year-old joins Liverpool, becoming their sixth signing of the summer.

Rianna Dean has signed for Liverpool Women after being released by Tottenham. In 63 appearances for Spurs over the past three seasons, she has netted 21 goals for the north London club.

Tottenham’s Dean, who helped the club to promotion from the Championship last season, came through Arsenal’s academy and spent a season with Millwall Lionesses before signing for Spurs.

She told Liverpool’s website: “I’m buzzing. The club is massive. I’m really looking forward to it and I’m really happy to be here. My job is to score goals and hopefully, that is what the fans will see from me. I like to work hard and do my best for the team. When you have healthy competition it only pushes individuals in the team to do better. I’ve come here to get promotion and help the team push on.”

Liverpool manager Matt Beard – who was appointed as the club’s boss for a second time in May – added: “It was important we signed a proven goalscorer and Rianna has done that consistently in two seasons in the Championship. She had a great first WSL season before being in and out of the team last year.”

In addition to Dean, Leanne Kiernan, Yana Daniels, Megan Campbell, Jasmine Matthews and Carla Humphrey have also joined Liverpool this summer.
