Done deal: Liverpool completes transfer of in-demand striker

Liverpool have completed the transfer of Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi  on a season long loan deal to Royal Excel Mouscron, according to reports.

Awoniyi announced himself to the world of football he won the most valuable player at a Coca Cola competition held in London in 2010. He was followed up by the Reds until 2015 when he made the move to Anfield in a  £400,000 deal.

Since joining the Anfield outfit, Awoniyi has spent the last two seasons on loan at FSV Frankfurt in Germany and NEC Nijmegen. He has been sent on another loan spell to accelerate his development.

The 19-year-old youngster has been on the radar of several clubs including  Dutch second division side Fortuna Sittard and Kalmar FF but the player opted to lace his boots for Excel Mouscron according to the report.

The youngster is yet to secure a work permit in England and his performance for his previous club has been dubbed relatively unsuccessful. He managed just 18 League games for NEC last term and scored two goals for the Eridivisie side.

Jurgen Klopp has already bolstered his squad this season and he has a large chunk of star strikers both old and young. Awoniyi must work harder to break through the team of Klopp.
