Nigerian professional footballer Taiwo Micheal Awoniyi, born on 12 August 1997, plays forward for Bundesliga club Union Berlin and the Nigerian national team.
Nottingham Forest Signing Taiwo Awoniyi
Recently, before leaving Union Berlin for Nottingham Forest for a reported £17.5 million, Taiwo Awoniyi bid his teammates farewell. Awoniyi is now having medical treatment.
The Premier League team received a permanent transfer from Liverpool last summer and will also get 10% of the transfer money.
Former Liverpool striker Awoniyi has played for Union Berlin for the past two seasons.
Due to problems with his work permit, the Reds decided to trade him last summer because he was unable to play for them.
Before completing a permanent contract for £6.5 million last summer, the former Reds striker played the 2020–21 season on loan with Die Eisernen.
The following season, the striker scored 20 goals for the Bundesliga team last season and was subsequently called up to the Nigerian team after moving to Union Berlin for £6.5 million last summer.
Prior to their return to the English top division, freshly promoted Nottingham Forest became interested in their recent form. Liverpool would receive a $1.75 million benefit from the planned £17.5 million trade because they secured a 10% sell-on option when they sold him to Union Berlin.
The four-cap international would probably enter the starting lineup right away if the move is finalized.
After Keinan Davis returned to Aston Villa following his loan, Cooper only has the veteran Lewis Grabban, 34, and Sam Surridge as his true Nos. 9s.
Therefore, the Reds would earn £1.75m due to their 10% sell-on clause as Union Berlin had made a large profit on the striker after just one season.
The actual amount Liverpool will receive from the German team, according to club insiders, is about £1.5 million. This information sheds light on the specifics of Awoniyi’s departure from Anfield and their returns to the Premier League.
The agreement will not contain a purchase option for the England international for Forest, who last season earned a play-off promotion back to the Premier League.
Henderson signed a new five-year contract in 2020, although his deal with United finishes in 2025.
Previously, between 2018 and 2020, the 25-year-old had some successful loan stints at Sheffield United, but he hasn’t been able to unseat David de Gea as the top goalkeeper at Old Trafford. Last season, Henderson only appeared in four games for United, none of which were in the Premier League.
With Lens already in advanced negotiations with Forest for the goalie, it is anticipated that the goalkeeper’s arrival at the City Ground will hasten Brice Samba’s transfer to that French club.
In the event that Harry Maguire’s captaincy is indeed removed, David De Gea is also a candidate to be designated the next leader of the team.
Daniel Bachmann, who will likely join the team to replace Henderson as the club’s number two goalkeeper, is also the subject of negotiations between United and Watford. When Ten Hag was in charge of Dutch champions Ajax, he had previously targeted Austrian international Bachmann.
