Liverpool striker Taiwo Awoniyi is set to leave the club this summer.

According to journalist Neil Jones, Awoniyi will complete a £6.5 million move to Union Berlin.

He claims that a fee has been agreed, and the medical will take place later today.

Liverpool midfielder Marko Grujic is also on his way out of the club. The midfielder is in Portugal to finalise his £10.5m move to Porto.

Like many other clubs, Liverpool are struggling financially due to the impact of the coronavirus.

The Reds have already signed Ibrahima Konate from RB Leipzig, paying £35m to secure his services.

It is widely reported that Liverpool’s potential incomings will largely depend on how much they can recoup through player sales.

Xherdan Shaqiri, Divock Origi, Lloris Karius, Nat Phillips, Neco Williams and Harry Wilson are some of the players who could be shown the exit door.

If the reported values are to be believed for the aforementioned players, they can expect to receive around £70-75m to boost their transfer kitty.

Awoniyi’s spell at Liverpool has been really frustrating. He signed for the Reds at the age of 18 and has had to wait until just before his 24th birthday to meaningfully train with his club teammates.

Due to work permit issues, Awoniyi has been passed around seven clubs across the last six years, but his time at Anfield appears to be over.
