Leicester City Women have added to their attacking options with the capture of young Striker Lachante Paul.

  • Lachante Paul joins the Foxes having left Arsenal Women at the end of 2018/19
  • The attacker netted twice in the FA WSL Academy Cup Final victory over Manchester United
  • The 17-year-old made her First Team debut for Arsenal in December 2018 coming off the bench in a Continental Tyres Cup match.

Leicester City Women Football Club have bolstered their attacking ranks with the addition of forward Lachante Paul who joins the Club from Arsenal.

The 17-year-old becomes Leicester City Women Manager Jonathan Morgan’s second signing of the summer following the arrival of Aimee Everett on Wednesday.

The former Arsenal striker arrives at the Club following a profitable 2018/19 season with the Gunners’ Development Side netting 15 goals in 15 games including four goals in a 15-1 victory over Yeovil Town Academy.

Speaking to LCWFC TV, Lachante Paul said: “I joined Leicester City because it’s a Club with great prospects. It’s a Club that pushes young players. I’m hoping I can help the Club get promotion.”

Leicester City Women Manager, Jonathan Morgan said: “Lachante is someone who is going to be very exciting to watch in this league. She’s got goals in her.

She’s someone that we’ve followed for the last twelve months. She’s got a feistiness to her game, she’s got attitude to her game, she’s got the aggression, the passion, that is what you need in the Championship to be a success.”

Lachante will join up with her new Leicester City Women teammates on Tuesday 25 June as the squad return for pre-season training ahead of the forthcoming 2019/20 campaign.
