Chelsea have signed their first contract under new ownership led by Boehly-Clearlake, bringing French defender Eve Perisset from Bordeaux to their women’s team on Wednesday.
Perisset will join Chelsea on 1 July after signing a three-year contract. The team is gearing up to defend their Women’s Super League title in 2022-23.
Todd Boehly and his group Clearlake Capital completed the formalities to take over the Premier League club last month from Roman Abramovich, who put Chelsea up for sale in March following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.
Perisset, who became the first French female player to play for Chelsea, said: “The time has come for me to make this big move to London and take part in the Super Cup.
Perisset, who has 34 caps for France and is named for the upcoming Euros, started his career with Olympique Lyonnais.
She has won the French league and cup four times, in addition to the 2016 Champions League.
The 27-year-old then moved to Paris Saint-Germain, where she won another French Cup before joining Bordeaux in 2020. Perisset made 45 appearances for Bordeaux.
