Matildas World Cup squad member Larissa Crummer is the latest player to sign for Melbourne City as they continue to build an impressive squad for Season 8.

Crummer, who just completed an AFC U19 campaign with the Young Matildas, arrived in Melbourne to start training with a squad that contains Matildas teammates Lisa De Vanna, Laura Alleway and Brianna Davey.

Crummer competed for Australia in the 2015 FIFA Women's World Cup coming on as a substitute in two matches in her first W0rld Cup.

The striker was a late bolter for the squad after impressing in the pre-tournament camps and has already scored one international goal for Australia in a 1-0 win over the Netherlands in the 2015 Cyprus Cup.

The 19 year old headlines a host of Young Matildas targeted by City that also includes Melbourne Victory's Beattie Goad.

Goad is set to be the latest Victory player to transfer her allegiance to Victory's new rivals, while former Victory and Young Matildas defender and current New Zealand World Cup defender Rebekah Stott looks also to be set to swap the navy blue for the light blue.

With De Vanna and Davey's contracts finalised, City are also rumoured to be after Victory captain Steph Catley.

The signature of Catley could spell disaster for former W-League champions Victory with five championship players heading across the road to the newcomers.

For Victory it could prove a tough season even if former championship coach Dave Edmondson does return to the helm for the 2015/16 season.

With a majority of the World Cup Matildas already committing to clubs for Season 8, Victory's late pre-season recruitment drive could be more focused at the State Premier League level and filling their international quota.
