Career To Date
After starting her adventure in football as a six-year-old at local side Vannas AIK, Landstrom progressed through the ranks there until she turned 15 - when she made the move to Sandakerns SK.
A year later, in 2008, she was on the move again, this time to Umea IK - for whom she spent a year in the academy before progressing to the first-team squad ahead of the 2009 season.
She made her debut in the top-flight of Swedish football in 2010, going on to pick up 16 appearances that season. She also made her Champions League debut, appearing in a 3-0 win over ASA Tel Aviv in August 2010.
In October 2015 she moved to Kopparbergs/Göteborg, establishing herself as a regular starter, before switching backdrops once again as she arrived at Linköping at the end of 2017.
She would stay with the serial title challenges until 2021, when Inter Milan came calling.
A naturally left-footed full-back, who therefore largely sticks to the left-back spot, Landstrom is able to contribute in all phases of the game - while her impressive crossing ability makes her a threat around the opposition box.
With more than 200 appearances in the Swedish top division to her name, Landstrom also played in 19 games in Serie A last term - providing two assists.
She completed 75% of her passes last season and won 77% of her aerial duels along with 54% of her challenges on the deck - a snapshot of her overall qualities.
