Liverpool’s position on 23 years is quite ambitious
Liverpool will sell Taiwo Awoniyi, with West Bromwich Albion, Stoke City and Fulham interested in the prospect of Anfield, according to The Athletic.
It has been reported that Awoniyi has been granted a UK work permit and that West Brom, Stoke and Fulham have all shown interest in the 23-year-old striker in the past.
Liverpool will sell, but the former Premier League champions want Â£ 8million in transfer fees this summer, according to the report.
If Liverpool got Â£ 8million for the 23-year-old striker this summer it would be a great deal.
Remember how much the Reds actually paid for the 23-year-old.
Only Â£ 400,000.
The Guardian reported in August 2015 that Liverpool paid Imperial Academy Â£ 400,000 to sign him.
The youngster hasn’t made a single game for the senior Liverpool squad and has been on loan at a number of clubs, including Ghent, Mainz and Union Berlin, in recent years.
It’s hard to see Awoniyi step into Liverpool’s first team next season.
It would make sense for the Reds to sell the youngster and get money for him.
It will be interesting to see how many clubs are willing to spend Â£ 8million on the youngster.
Would West Brom, Stoke and Fulham be willing to spend Â£ 8million on a 23-year-old who hasn’t played a single minute in English football?
You might think not, but they might well have been in awe of what the youngster has done away from England.
Wanting Â£ 8million for Awoniyi is pretty ambitious, but you never know, Liverpool sporting director Michael Edwards may well be successful.
