Taiwo Awoniyi’s return could land Liverpool a £2.5m transfer boost

    Taiwo awoniyi in action

    If Taiwo Awoniyi, Liverpool’s former striker, comes back to the Premier League in the summer, then Liverpool without a doubt has the potential to earn at least £2.5 million.

    The Nigerian international departed Liverpool at the end of last season after securing a permanent loan deal to Union Berlin of the German league for around £6.5 million. Since then, he has netted 11 goals in 24 Bundesliga outings for the club and is rapidly discovering his peak talent.

    Despite the fact that Taiwo Awoniyi joined Liverpool in 2015, Awoniyi never made a single senior appearance due to his inability to get a UK work permit. His prospects of obtaining a permit have improved now that he has appeared on the world stage.

    By the season’s end, West Ham, Southampton, and Newcastle, among other premier league clubs, were all reported to likely make a move for him as they have been showing a keen interest in signing the 24-year-old striker. 

    Liverpool consented to a 10% sell-on agreement with Berlin in the previous summer and would profit if a price battle broke out amongst the three teams listed.

    Awoniyi is said to be interested in returning to England if offered the chance, in spite of the fact that he was incapable of taking his chances in the nation with two hands due to factors beyond his control.

    Liverpool is certainly profitable with Awoniyi after paying £400,000 for him originally, and the sell-on fee would further enhance their profit advantage.

    However, speculations of signings in Merseyside will probably be halted until the end of the season, as Jurgen Klopp’s team has a solid opportunity of winning an extraordinary quadruple.  

    They are just trailing Manchester City by a point in the Premier League, have great potential in the UEFA Champions League, won the Carabao Cup in February, and are expected to face Manchester City in the FA Cup semi-finals.
