Linda Charlotta Sällström (born 13 July 1988) is a Finnish international footballer. She currently plays for French club Paris FC in the Division 1 Féminine and the Finland women's national football team.

She made her debut for the senior Finland team on 31 May 2007; playing 17 minutes against Norway. [3]

Sällström missed the entire 2012 season with an anterior cruciate ligament injury. She re–injured the knee in March 2013 and was ruled out of contention for a place in Finland's UEFA Women's Euro 2013 squad. [4]

On 25 January 2014 Sällstrom injured her anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) again, making it likely she would miss the 2014 season. [5]
