Nigeria forward Taiwo Awoniyi should stay and fight for his place at Liverpool, Super Eagles legend Tijani Babangida has told Tribalfootball.com.
Awoniyi has finally received a UK work-permit some six years after signing for Liverpool from Imperial Soccer Academy in his homeland.
It has been a long and arduous journey for the U17 World Cup winner, having spent seven separate loan spells away from Anfield due to the work permit issues.
His last spell - at Union Berlin - saw Awoniyi collect five goals and three assists in 21 appearances.

In the eyes of Babangida, Jurgen Klopp's is perfect for Awoniyi and the Super Eagles star should do everything in his power to remain a Red next season.
"For Taiwo, I believe that [his work permit] is good news," Babangida told Tribalfootball.com.
The Reds have reportedly put an £8m price tag on Awoniyi, who is under contract until 2023.
