Super Eagles star Taiwo Awoniyi moved to Premier League newcomers Nottingham Forest as reported by Italian transfer market expert Fabrizio Romano.
Romano has tweeted that all the necessary paperworks have been signed, paving the way for the 2013 U17 World Cup winner to be unveiled as a new Nottingham Forest player in the coming days.
Nottingham Forest forced his exit from Union Berlin after activating a 20 million euros release clause in his contract.
Awoniyi’s former club Liverpool inserted a ten percent sell-on clause into the deal taking the striker to Union Berlin last summer. The Anfield side will thus receive ten percent of the transfer fee (equivalent of two million euros).
Awoniyi switched to Union Berlin in 2020, first on loan. He will conlude a permanent deal the following season.
The Nigerian international leaves the German Bundesliga club after 65 appearances in all competitions in which he scored 25 goals, including 20 in the 2021-2022 campaign.
