Paris Saint-Germain is pleased to announce the arrival of Jennifer Onyi Echegini to its women’s team. The Nigerian international striker has signed with the Parisian club until June 2027.

Born in Nijmegen, Netherlands, Jennifer Onyi Echegini, also known as “Joe”, started playing football in England, where she grew up, in the youth categories of Millwall Lionesses FC and then Arsenal. In 2019, the forward flew to the United States, joining the University of Mississippi before joining Florida State in 2022.

In her final season in the American college championship, the 23-year-old led her team to the 2023 NCAA Championship title. Her individual performances earned her numerous awards: best attacker and best player in the ACC (Atlantic Coast Conference) as well as winner of the Hermann Trophy, the most prestigious award in American college football.

Jennifer Onyi Echegini started 2024 by signing for Juventus. In six months, the Nigerian scored 10 goals and provided one assist in 16 games in all competitions, helping the Turin club qualify for the UEFA Women’s Champions League. Half a season was enough for her to be named in the Team of the Year and voted the best young player of the season.

With the “Super Falcons”, the attacker has 10 caps and 1 goal. She played in the 2023 Women’s World Cup in Australia and lost in the round of 16, on penalties, against England.

« JI am living a great moment in my career today. Signing for Paris Saint-Germain is a huge source of pride. I am very proud to join a club that is recognized around the world for its ambition and excellence. I can’t wait to get started and I can’t wait to give the best of myself to try to win, with my teammates and for the supporters, as many trophies as possible. »
