West Bromwich Albion and Fulham are reportedly keen to sign Liverpool striker Taiwo Awoniyi in the summer transfer window.
According to Goal.com, seven clubs have approached the Reds over the Nigerian striker’s availability.
Awoniyi joined Liverpool in 2015, but he has spent the past six years on loan at a host of clubs in Europe. This season, he has played in the Bundesliga with Union Berlin.
The report claims that several English clubs like Stoke City, Fulham and West Brom are interested in signing the 23-year-old.
After years of plying trade elsewhere, he and his family were finally granted UK work permits, following a lengthy application process.
Awoniyi will now be able to continue his career in England, but it appears that his future seems away from Anfield, without even kicking a ball for the Reds.
However, Jurgen Klopp may have a different idea. Goal claims that Liverpool plan to involve him in the first part of their pre-season schedule.
It will enable him to train with the senior group and play in some pre-season friendlies. Klopp will have a good look at him when a host of first-team players are away on international duty at the European Championships and Copa America.
Having said that, a move away from Liverpool looks more likely, and a fee in the region of £8 million could be enough to secure his services.
Fulham and West Brom will be playing in the Championship next season following their relegation.
The striker will get more exposure and game time if he joins one of these clubs in the summer.
