Lazio Women have signed Italian midfielder Giulia Ferrandi on a free transfer.

As announced in an official statement earlier today, the Biancocelesti have signed the 29-year-old Italian to reinforce coach Massimiliano Catini’s midfield ahead of the second half of the Serie A Femminile season.

Ferrandi, who most recently spent a season-and-a-half with Pomigliano, has signed an 18-month contract with Lazio Women that will expire on 30th June 2023. Prior to her move to Pomigliano, she spent two seasons with Florentia, helping them win Serie B Women to secure their promotion to the topflight.

The Italian midfielder started her career with Atalanta, joining the first team in 2007, before moving to Brescia, where she won a Coppa Italia. She also spent time in England with West Ham and Watford, before returning to Italy with Fiorentina, where she won a league title and Coppa Italia.

Ferrandi discussed her move to Lazio Women, saying on Instagram:

Happy and excited to join this historic club and to put myself at the disposal of the team.

Joining in the middle of the season is never easy, but I will try to give my contribution to every goal I have set.

A big thank you to Emmanuel and Sport Management for being there for me during these days and for supporting (and putting up with) me from day one.

Onwards all.

The 29-year-old Ferrandi also has experience with the Azzurri, making three appearances for the Under-17 squad and 11 appearances for the Under-19 team.
