Asisat Oshoala could be on the move to the NWSL.

A report in SPORT over the weekend linked the FC Barcelona and Nigerian forward to an immediate transfer to a to-be-named NWSL club. According to reports, the transfer fee is around €150,000 ($162,000 USD).

On Saturday, Oshoala did not play in the team’s game against Real Betis, with the club citing “personal reasons.” She was also omitted from the Barcelona roster for Wednesday’s Champions League game. Reportedly, the Nigerian star has not been training with the team.

Oshoala has made 14 appearances for Barcelona this season, starting in just three games. Through that time, she’s netted eight goals.

Her rumored move to the NWSL follows coach Jonatan Giraldez, who is set to depart Barcelona upon the conclusion of the season for the Washington Spirit.
