Union Berlin to sign Taiwo Awoniyi (23) on a permanent basis

Union Berlin are on the verge of signing 23-year-old Nigerian forward Taiwo Awoniyi on a permanent basis from Premier League side Liverpool, according to Kicker.

English media reports that Awoniyi will join the Bundesliga side for £6.5m (€7.5m), a new record purchase for Union Berlin.

Awoniyi spent last season on loan at the Stadion An der Alten Försterei, scoring five and creating three in 21 Bundesliga games before picking up a muscle injury in February.
