Liverpool Forward Taiwo Awoniyi In Loan Talks With Turkish Side Giresunspor


Former Nigeria junior international Taiwo Awoniyi is in talks over another loan move away from English Premier League side Liverpool as he is still not eligible for a work permit in England.


Awoniyi have had two loan spells since joining Liverpool two summers ago, and both of the clubs he has played for German side ‎FSV Frankfurt, and Dutch side NEC Nijmegen suffered relegation during his time with them.

However that has not stopped teams from showing interest in the talented ‎19 year old who has been likened to legendary Nigerian goal scorer Rashidi Yekini.

Belgian side Sint Truiden and Swedish side Kalmar were the first team to have sounded out Liverpool over a loan deal for the forward, but it appears Turkish side Giresunspor are now the front runners for his signature.

Reports from Turkey has it that the second division Turkish side are eyeing promotion to the first league next season and they believe Awoniyi will be instrumental to their aspirations, as he will come handy in attack.
