Fulham, West Brom in Liverpool contact after Awoniyi secures UK work permit

Liverpool are ready to sell Taiwo Awoniyi this summer.

The Liverpool Echo says the Nigerian striker has been granted a UK work permit.

After spending the current season with Union Berlin, the 23-year-old has played the required quota of Bundesliga matches to meet the new GBE work permit criteria for next season.

A number of English clubs have contacted Liverpool to register interest in the 23-year-old, having followed his progress closely this season, with Goal reporting initial discussions have been held with Fulham, West Brom and Stoke City, with the Reds also fielding enquiries from Union Berlin, Stuttgart and Wolfsburg.

Liverpool are not actively looking to sell the striker, and remained in close contact with Awoniyi over the course of the season.

But it is understood they would expect to receive a fee of £8m-£10m for his services having rejected a £5m offer from Anderlecht in the past.
