Taiwo Awoniyi on his way to Anfield with medical and contract signing imminent

Liverpool are on the verge of signing Nigeria’s Taiwo Awoniyi, with him due to sign a contract at the club once he turns 18 on Wednesday.

Anfield chiefs have been unable to secure a work permit for the Nigeria Under-23 international so he will immediately head out on loan to a Belgian or Dutch club.

It’s thought Liverpool have won a 3-horse race between themselves, Monaco and Porto in order to secure the signing.

Awoniyi has represented Nigeria at numerous youth levels and is involved in the country’s Olympic set-up.
