The young midfielder is the subject of a huge bid from NWSL side Portland Thorns that is expected to break league records.

Although it's still a few months to go until the start of the 2024 NWSL season, one team is really keen on bolstering their squad as they hope to compete for titles in the upcoming campaign.

According to multiple reports, the Portland Thorns, who recently made waves due to their change in ownership, are set to break a league record in their signing of Chelsea's Jessie Fleming. The 25-year-old Canadian international has spent the last four seasons with the Blues, where she has made over 100 appearances and has won several titles, including three WSL trophies and three FA Cups.

Fleming, who usually plays as a midfielder but has also been deployed on the wing, is the subject of a record-breaking bid worth approximately $315,000 to prise her away from the WSL champions. She is expected to slot right into the starting XI as the Thorns, who finished in second place in the NWSL last season, look to find a solid option to replace 31-year-old American international Crystal Dunn, who left on a free transfer at the end of 2023.
