Swedish top division team Kalmar FF are keeping close tabs on Taiwo Awoniyi who is on loan at FSV Frankfurt in Germany from Liverpool.

Awoniyi was signed in the summer and immediately sent out on loan by Liverpool but has failed to gain the necessary game time that informed him to be loaned.

Kalmar were beaten to his signature by Liverpool despite the 18 year old spending time with them as a minor the last two years.

They appear to have still have their minds on him as manager Thomas Anderson told Kalmar24 they are in touch with Liverpool and the striker over a move.

“We are in touch with both Taiwo and Liverpool and formally he is on loan to Frankfurt until the summer” He said.

Kalmar have however completed the 2015 Swedish season narrowly escaping relegation and Awoniyi who has just 28 minutes of first team football at Frankfurt might be their short term option ahead of the new season.

The Nigerian striker have risen through the ranks from the Under-17 team of Nigeria to the Under-23 after impressing with the Under-20’s.
