Nottingham Forest: Taiwo Awoniyi linked with move

Nottingham Forest: Taiwo Awoniyi linked with move -Nottingham Forest News

Nottingham Forest are interested in signing Union Berlin attacker Taiwo Awoniyi in the summer transfer window, according to a fresh rumour that has emerged.

The Lowdown: Big summer ahead

Steve Cooper is preparing for his side’s return to the Premier League next season, with new signings an obvious key area of focus alongside talks for the manager’s new contract.

Numerous additions will be required, in order for Forest to compete with the best sides in the country, or they will be risking a swift return to the Championship.

Plenty of links have emerged to goalkeepers such is the perilous situation with Brice Samba, but a new transfer rumour suggests Cooper could be about to bring in a potent attacking player.

The Latest: Forest keen on Awoniyi move

According to Sky Germany, Forest are interested in signing Awoniyi, who was formerly at Liverpool before joining Union Berlin.

The Nigerian is keen to leave his current club this summer, and the Premier League newcomers are ready to pounce and pay his release clause of €20million (£17.2m).

The Verdict: Hugely exciting talent

Awoniyi is an exciting and physically imposing player who could be exactly what Forest need next season, adding much-needed firepower to a squad that is set to come up against far superior defences than in the Championship.

The 24-year-old enjoyed an excellent 2021/22 season, scoring 15 goals in 29 Bundesliga starts. He was hailed as ‘amazing’ by Union Berlin’s official Twitter account back in 2020, no surprise given he holds the record as the club’s all-time leading Bundesliga scorer.

Will Forest stay in the Premier League?





His goal threat and all-round end product could ensure Forest aren’t goal-shy in the Premier League – the fact that his release clause isn’t too high makes the move seem even more tempting.
