Coach of Liverpool Jurgen Klopp is aware of the progress on loan Nigerian forward Taiwo Awoniyi is making at Belgium side Mouscron, where he is currently on a season long loan from the Premier League side.
Awoniyi has had too forgettable spell on loan, first in Germany with second division side FSV Frankfurt, where he scored just once in 13 games for the team who were eventually relegated to the third division in Germany.
The 20 year old was at Dutch side NEC Nijmegen, but just like his first loan spell in Germany, he struggled to get sufficient game time and also had to endure the pain of relegation with the team after they failed to stay in the division via the play-off.
However at Royal Excel Mouscron of Belgium, he has grown into a regular player for the first team with 24 games under his belt, and six goals to his name as well.
He has also distinguished himself in several roles in attack aside his main position as the main striker. A role he has flourished in for the various arms of the Nigeria youth teams that he has represented in the past.
His form has delighted Klopp who was instrumental in Liverpool signing the forward after a dazzling display for the Nigeria U20 and 23s in 2015. A scout of the team responsible for monitoring players on loan has communicated the manager’s happiness to the Nigerian.
