Footballer Mia Fishel has become one of the most expensive players in the history of the women’s game after joining Chelsea.

Fishel can look forward to Champions League football this season after joining the Women’s Super League champions for a reported $250,000 from Mexican giants Tigres.

The 22-year-old, whose father Patrick is Bermudian, is related to the Bascomes, the island’s famous football family, including former Bermuda players Andrew and David Bascome.

Fishel helped Tigres win the league title last season, scoring 47 goals in 64 games and was the first foreign player to claim the Liga MX Femenil golden boot.

“I’ve been a Chelsea fan since I was little, and Drogba, Hazard, that was my team,” Fishel said in an interview on Chelsea FC Women’s Twitter feed.

“It’s just crazy being here. This is my first time at Stamford Bridge, and honestly, I just can’t describe how I feel. It’s so beautiful.”

Fishel, who has penned a three-year deal, received a first United States call-up in 2020 but has yet to make her international debut.

“I started playing in a national team [at youth level], and they called me Fish,” the striker said. “I kept playing, and my success on the field meant the other players called me Big Fish.

“It feels crazy to see my name on the back of a Chelsea shirt, and I’m very excited to get started with this amazing club, and I just hope I can hit the ground running.”

Fishel believes Chelsea can help her achieve her ambitions to win the biggest trophies and become one of the top players in the world.

“I want to become the best soccer player here,” she said. “The competitiveness, the wanting to win, I want to be part of this history.

“I want to win titles; I want to win championships; I want to play in the Champions League and dominate. My ambition, just like this club, is to be the best.”

Chelsea manager Emma Hayes will be hoping Fishel’s goals can propel Chelsea to win the Champions League for the first time.

“Mia is an exceptional finisher whose box presence and movement make her elite,” Hayes said on the club’s website.

“She can also create something from nothing. Her prime years are to come.”
