Many Liverpool fans believe that Taiwo Awoniyi is not the right man to replace Divock Origi if the Belgian decides to leave.
The 23-year-old is currently on loan from at FC Union Berlin over in Germany, where he is certainly catching the eye.
From 13 Bundesliga appearances, Awoniyi has scored five goals and provided two assists, getting regular first-team football under his belt in a competitive league (TransferMarkt).
Is Taiwo Awoniyi good enough for Liverpool?
The Nigerian centre-forward has had an array of loan spells since arriving at the club in 2015, spending time at the likes of FSV Frankfurt, NEC Nijmegen, Mouscron, KAA Gent, and Mainz last season. In total, he has scored 38 times from over 100 outings combined.
Awoniyi has never made a first-team appearance for Liverpool. With speculation surrounding Divock Origi’s future still unclear, Anfield Edition presented the facts for supporters to stick their teeth into.
Despite this, supporters were convinced that Awoniyi is not good enough to play for the club, and that his Belgian teammate is a better player.
Fans not convinced by Awoniyi
“I’ve watched him and can say with confidence that he’s not good enough. Not even close to Origi. The best that could happen is we get a nice offer for him”
“He won’t ever be a Liverpool player due to being one for 5 years now and never getting a permit. I give up on him”
“Has done nothing for years now so would be the perfect time to sell him while his stocks are up”
“No, we need to sign someone with world-class potential.”
“He is not good enough for Liverpool, I think Liverpool should sell him for good price”
“No will be sold”
“Sell him Edwards!”
