The form of former Nigeria youth international striker Taiwo Awoniyi at Belgium side Mouscron has caught the attention of his primary team Liverpool, Owngoalnigeria.com can exclusively reveal.
Awoniyi has taken the league by storm in Belgium with 8 goals to his name for Mouscron, who are not entirely set up in an attacking away due to their precarious position on the log in the Belgium top division.
The Nigerian has been one of the shinning light of the team, who are battling to stay in the top division in Belgium, and with two years left on his current deal at Liverpool talks over an extension is expected to start soon.
He joined Liverpool three years ago on a five year deal and after two seasons out on loan. He is enjoying his most productive time in front of goal. A form that has earned him the tag of the best loan player of the team.
A new deal to keep him at the club is expected to be thrashed out at the end of the season, with Liverpool keen on tying him down on a longer deal to keep him away from clubs who are reportedly keen on making as a swoop for the talented forward.
His representatives are expected to decide on his future in the summer, and any extension would have to carry a caveat of a spot in the first team pre season training for him to stake a claim in the first team provided he fulfils the work permit requirements.
