Liverpool have developed a number of young talents over the years who have either gone on to break into the first-team or seek moves away to secure regular football.
Of course, with success revolving around money nowadays in the football world it’s very difficult for younger players to work their way into the manager’s plans, especially in the Premier League.
The likes of Trent Alexander-Arnold and Joe Gomez have managed to do it in recent times at Anfield, but there’s an awful lot of players who have had to settle for loan moves instead.
One player who’s currently spending time out on loan is Taiwo Awoniyi.
Indeed, Liverpool signed the Nigerian for £990k (as per Transfermarkt) back in 2015 but he’s failed to work his way into the first-team fold, with five loan moves to his name. He’s currently plying his trade at Belgian side Mouscron.
Awoniyi has seven goals and two assists to his name in nine appearances after joining Mouscron on loan back in the January transfer window, which appears to have caught the attention of Schalke (as per Liverpool Echo). And, it’s believed that the Reds would ask for £12.9 million for the striker, which would provide them with a large profit.
Michael Edwards has worked wonders over the years at Anfield by getting the best possible fee out of the sale of a number of players, including the likes of Philippe Coutinho and Dominic Solanke. So, he could pull off another masterstroke by getting almost £13 million for a player who hasn’t even featured for the Reds first-team.
Liverpool fans, how pleased would you be with £12.9 million for the attacker? Join the discussion by commenting down below!
