Awoniyi spent last season on loan at Union Berlin and scored five goals in 22 league appearances to help the modest club secure qualification for the inaugural UEFA Europa Conference League.

The talented forward joined Liverpool from Imperial Academy in 2015 but has not been able to play for the Reds due to work permit issues.

He has spent time on loan at German second division outfit FSV Frankfurt, Dutch club NEC Nijmegen and Belgian pair Mouscron and Gent as well as Bundesliga side Mainz.

    This is the guy who will be our long term solution with Victor Osimhen…

      Are you serious? Awoniyi (2013) who was Osimhen’s (2015) senior in U17 competitions? Long term solution?

  • I think this is a better move for awoniyi. He has played with the team and knows how they operate. He will just continue from where he stopped. Hopefully He will score more goals this season and remain injury free. He also has an opportunity to make himself noticed by the national team handlers and possible get a recall to the team. The super eagles need more competition in the strikers position.
    No one yet has come close to challenging Victor Osimhen as number one and its clear to see why. Most of our strikers are not the hustling type, maybe its how their clubs want them to play but when it gets to the big stage you need to hustle and bustle and trouble your opponent if you want to score. Apart from Osimhen, I haven’t seen that attitude in other strikers. Although the other attackers bring something good to team like pace, skill, height etc they also need strength and drive to score.
