Deal Close: Liverpool set to beat Manchester City to the signing of striker

Brendan Rodgers' sides usually improve after ChristmasThere’s a fair few pints flowing today for the Liverpool fans inside the Football Transfer Tavern, and now there’s also a steady flow of transfer rumours going around, that the Anfield club are close to making a new signing!

This comes from the Metro who are reporting that young Nigerian starlet, Taiwo Awoniyi, is set to make a move to Merseyside imminently.

At just 17-years-old he is currently playing for a Soccer Academy in his home country, but Liverpool fans will be even more pleased to hear the news that he might be signing when they hear that Manchester City were very keen on the young striker.

Our landlord here in the Transfer Tavern had his say: “I would be well chuffed if i was a Liverpool fan, Brendan Rodgers really seems to be buying some good youth and building for the future!”

Our resident Reds fans are liking the sound of this deal and admit he must be half decent if Manchester City were pursuing him as well!
