Nigerian striker Awoniyi wanted by French club Nice on loan

Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi's service is being wanted by French club Nice.

The Liverpool striker has been on loan since joining the English Premier Club in 2015.

After a short loan spell at Royal Excel Mouscron, Awoniyi returned to Anfield for pre-season, but the presence of Divock Origi, Roberto Firmino, Sadio Mane and Mohamed Salah made him surplus to the Reds team.

French Ligue 1 club Nice are not prepared to pay £10m for Awoniyi’s services but will take the former U-17 star on loan for the 2019/20 season, a Punch report says.

Awoniyi signed a contract extension with Liverpool last season.

He has had loan spells at FSV Frankfurt (2015 - 2016), NEC (2016 - 2017), Royal Excel Mouscron (2017 - 2018), Gent (2018 - 2019) and Royal Excel Mouscron (2019).
