Pedro Martinez Losa says new Arsenal Ladies signing Jodie Taylor is one of the world’s best strikers.

The England international joined from American side Portland Thorns on transfer deadline day, making her the Gunners' sixth addition this season.

Taylor has Women’s Super League experience having played for Birmingham City for two years, and Losa says she has all the right ingredients to be a success.

"We are looking forward to having her on the pitch as soon as possible as it is where she can give us her best"

“Bringing an England international who has been successful in one of the best leagues in the world and scoring goals, you have to be proud to bring those sorts of players to the club,” the manager told Arsenal.com. “That shows a lot for the health of the project we have in our hands now, and how the club wants to work for the women’s team.

“The fans will be expecting a top player that scores goals and I’m pretty sure that they will be able to enjoy her football and the energy she can bring to the group. Maybe Jodie can be a mixture of Asisat Oshoala and Natalia.

"She is a finisher, with very good quality, but her ability to work in 90 minutes, press and put the defenders under pressure makes her one of the best strikers in the world.

"We are looking forward to having her on the pitch as soon as possible as it is where she can give us her best.”
