Accordingly goalNewcastle and West Ham are fighting to sign Taiwo Awoniyi, who Jürgen Klopp sold to Liverpool in the summer of 2021.
What’s the matter?
Well, the 24-year-old joined Liverpool in 2015 as an 18-year-old but left without a senior appearance due to work permit issues.
Now, following his move to Union Berlin, the Nigerian is doing so well that he could soon return to the Premier League.
goal believe Southampton are also interested in signing the Ilorin-born striker, who is said to be keen on returning to the Premier League.
Newcastle, West Ham and the Saints are ready to pay £25m for Awoniyi, with Liverpool set to receive 10% of the fee through a sell-on clause.
The Liverpool outcast could find success at Newcastle or West Ham
In our opinion, Awoniyi is built for the Premier League and has the ability to thrive in England’s top flight.
The 6-footer forward is fast, strong and also a brilliant finisher who has beaten Serge Gnabry, Thomas Muller, Leroy Sane and Marco Reus so far this season in the Bundesliga (BBC).
West Ham could certainly use a new frontman to back up Mikhail Antonio in attack, especially with another Europa League campaign likely to take place next season.
For Newcastle, Eddie Howe could also use a new striker to replace Dwight Gayle as he would then have three quality options in Callum Wilson, Chris Wood and Awoniyi.
Keep an eye on this saga as a move could materialize if Awoniyi is desperate to return to the Premier League.
