Juventus have announced the signing of Aston Villa winger Alisha Lehmann on a three-year contract.

The Switzerland international has left Villa following a three-season stint in the West Midlands, while her six-year stay in England has also come to an end.

A club statement from Juventus read: "Alisha Lehmann is a new Juventus Women player. The Switzerland international has joined the Bianconere from Aston Villa, signing a contract until 30 June, 2027.

"Alisha arrives as a big-name signing for Juventus Women, and she will add real quality to Massimiliano Canzi's 2023/24 squad.

"Welcome to Juventus, Alisha!"

Villa's parting statement read: "Aston Villa Women can confirm Alisha Lehmann has joined Juventus for an undisclosed fee.

"After starting her career with BSC YB Frauen in her native Switzerland, the forward enjoyed spells with West Ham United and Everton before joining Villa in 2021.

"She went on to spend three seasons in claret and blue, helping the club to its best-ever finish in the Barclays WSL as well as semi-final appearances in both domestic cup competitions.

"At the end of the 2021/22 campaign, she was also voted Women’s Supporters’ Player of the Season.

"Lehmann departs Villa having made 74 appearances for the club as well as netting on 14 occasions.

"Everyone at the football club thanks Alisha for her time in claret and blue and wishes her well in her next chapter."

Lehmann's move to Juventus comes shortly after her partner, Douglas Luiz, also made the move to the Allianz Stadium from Villa. The Brazil midfielder joined on a part-exchange deal which saw Samuel Iling-Junior and Enzo Barrenchea move the other way.
