Her latest stint was with Bordeaux, a club she joined in 2020.

She has represented France 34 times and will make the squad set to play in the Euro 2022 this summer.

Speaking on her transfer, the midfielder promised to give her all to her new club, telling the Chelsea website:

"Chelsea is a big club . It is a club that works well and I hope I will be able to add to this team,"

Chelsea’s transition

Chelsea ownership officially changed in May, bringing an end to a memorable reign of Roman Abramovic.

American-led consortium, spearheaded by businessman Boehly purchased the club from Abramovic, who put it up for sale in early March following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

The sale process took some time and faced uncertainty mainly because of the sanctions imposed on the Russian billionaire.

Spurs sign backup keeper

In other transfer news, Fraser Forster has joined Tottenham on a two-year deal from Southampton following the 34-year-old's contract expiration at St Mary's

The 34-year-old goalkeeper has struggled for first-team football recently, making only 19 league appearances for the Saints in the 2021/22 season.

The England international becomes Antonio Conte’s second summer signing following the signature of Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan also on a free transfer.
