Taiwo Awoniyi completes EPL move with a record breaking transfer fee

Newly-promoted side Nottingham Forest have completed the signing of Taiwo Awoniyi from Union Berlin in a club-record move after the former Liverpool striker passed a medical.

According to reports, Forest paid £17.5 million (€20.5 million) for the Nigerian international, making him the club’s most expensive signing ever, surpassing the £13.5m spent on Joao Carvalho in 2018.

The deal hands Awoniyi a second chance at fulfilling his childhood dream of playing in the English Premier League, failing to make a single appearance in his first attempt.

The 24-year-old began his senior career at Liverpool in 2015 but never played a single minute for the Reds.
