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