West Brom, Fulham, Stoke Handed Boost In Pursuit Of Awoniyi

Liverpool could sell £8 million-rated striker Taiwo Awoniyi this summer amid links to Fulham, Stoke City, and West Bromwich Albion, according to The Athletic.

The 23-year-old joined the Anfield outfit from Imperial Academy in Nigeria in 2015 but has never featured for the club, instead spending the last six years out on loan in Europe.

It is understood that Awoniyi has recently been granted a UK work permit and it seems he could be one of a number of fringe players to be sold as Liverpool look to add to Jurgen Klopp’s transfer fund.

The Athletic has reported that the striker could be sold this summer and that there are suitors in the Championship, with Fulham, Stoke, and West Brom all having indicated their interest already.

The report claims that Liverpool would look for a fee of £8 million should Awoniyi, who still has two years left on his contract, depart in the current window.

The Nigerian forward has played on both flanks in the past but is primarily a centre-forward.

He contributed five goals and four assists in 22 appearances for Bundesliga side Union Berlin last season.

    Before his injury he was on a roll. He was getting interest everywhere, from celtic, rangers, Stuttgart, Wolfsburg, permanent signing from union berlin and premier league clubs. Before he said he wanted to play for Liverpool, but he didn’t have the work permit, that’s why he went on loans. Jurgen Klopp being a German manager I will think he will give this African a chance like most German managers do. Why should they sell him? He is capable of playing for top tier teams and is wanted by top tier teams. Why should he go play for a just relegated team like fulham, west brom and stoke? That will destroy him for sure. Its bundesliga or liverpool for me. I never seen a loaned player get that type of appreciation before. Union Berlin made it to europa league conference, 7th place. Super eagles is going to be mainly comprised of players playing for lower tier teams. This is terrible, if he got his paperwork on time he would of played for Liverpool in the beginning. This would be a major step down

     
    • @shuma you are very correct….Union wanted to sign him permanently by all means but Liverpool refused so why suddenly sell him to a championship team?… Liverpool went through a very rigorous process to get him a work permit and that must be for a reason….Klopp also had a hand in him going to union so this report doesn’t add up…. Trust our national media very soon now it’s Galatasaray and Fernabache you will be hearing

    … Tight baller Awoniyi… as our boys wey the handle business in your absence the do anyhow… just do come collect spot. We don tire for “goaldemon” and “seniorman” “swegbe” levels…

     
  • You guys are funny o because he scored in 3 matches in a row so he has become “tight baller” another one said he was “wanted all over Europe”? y’all should calm down….Awoniyi was obviously on a purple patch before the injury but it wasn’t as if he was banging goals before the injury, he barely scored 5 goals in over 20 matches…its this same over-hype that you guys put on Onyekuru now where is he?
    just calm down and let this boys grow. surely Awoniyi has potential, I know but relax let him grow

      He scored 5 goals in seven games, thats not hype thats a fact. Then a torn muscle injury put him out until the end of the season. He wasn’t banging goals then, he found his footing, he was going to be consistent. And I sure wasnt hyping Onyekuru. Awoniyi and Onyekuru are two different players. Awoniyi playing in the bundesliga getting recognition from top tier teams. He is a loan player from liverpool, get out your ass. I dont think liverpool just sign anybody. He is not overhyped like you do for Iwobi, this guy has potential and needs a opportunity which he got from being loaned to union berlin a team two seasons ago were at second tier and finished 11th place last season and now finish 7th, which is how he is getting attention.
