Nottingham Forest interested in signing Union Berlin forward Taiwo Awoniyi for €20m

Newly-promoted Premier League club Nottingham Forest are interested in signing Nigeria international Taiwo Awoniyi from Union Berlin, per Sky Germany.

Awoniyi, 24, is reported to have a release clause in the region of €20 million.

Having raised around €190m, thanks to being promoted to the English top division, Nottingham Forest will be able to pay such an amount for the Nigerian, who registered 15 goals in 31 Bundesliga games for Union last season.

Awoniyi, who was once at Liverpool, has since disclosed a desire to return to the Premier League.

Speaking to Kicker back in February, he said: “Everyone knows that, including here at the club. If I lived in England, it would be easier for my wife and child. Also my sister and a brother live on the island.”

The former Liverpool striker spent the 2020/21 season on loan at Union Berlin before the capital club made the move permanent last summer for €7m.
