Riola Xhemaili transfers to Wolfsburg in the summer from Bundesliga rivals, SC Freiburg. She signed a contract until June 2026.
The 20-year-old started her career in Switzerland with FC Basel. In 2021, she moved to Germany, signing with Freiburg. The Swiss midfielder played 40 matches for Freiburg across all competitions. One of the biggest talents in Frauen Bundesliga joins Wolfsburg on a free transfer following her contract expiration. Xhemaili is also a regular in the Swiss national team with 20 caps on her tally.
“I am looking forward to the new task at VfL Wolfsburg. Playing in the Champions League and competing for titles in the league and cup every year – that’s what every player dreams of. I want to integrate myself quickly and well into the team and do my part to ensure that we will be successful together,” said Xhemaili, who joins Vivien Endemann as the latest summer signing.
