Liverpool on verge of signing Nigerian striker


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.
