AS Roma Women are delighted to announce the signing of Swedish forward Alva Selerud.
Selerud, 22, joins the Giallorosse on a long-term contract that runs until 30 June 2025.
The versatile playmaker will wear the No. 19 shirt for the club.
“I am incredibly proud and thankful to have signed for AS Roma,” Selerud said.
“From my very first meeting with the club, I got the impression that I was really wanted and that they really believed in me.
“Rome offers an environment where I can develop and become an even better footballer. With Roma I will have the chance to face top teams both domestically and in Europe and to compete for trophies, which is a dream of mine.”
Selerud joins from Swedish side Linkopings FC, with whom she has spent the entirety of her senior career and also won the national title in 2017.
She began her career at Svärtinge SK, before briefly going on to spend time at IFK Norrköping.
Comfortable also playing in midfield and a wing-back role, Selerud led the Swedish league in assists last season – and recently also received a call-up for training camp with Sweden’s senior national side.
“We are delighted to welcome Alva to Roma,” said Betty Bavagnoli, the club’s Head of Women’s Football.
“She is a young player who immediately expressed to us her great desire to take on a new challenge in a different football environment to the one she has experienced throughout her career to date.
“We really appreciated the enthusiasm she showed at the prospect of joining our squad and we are confident that such an attitude will help her to play an invaluable role as we continue to push on.”
Welcome to Rome, Alva!
