Latest Liverpool transfer news: CSKA Moscow interested in signing Taiwo Awoniyi
Russian giants CSKA Moscow have enquired about Taiwo Awoniyi, according to Paul Joyce of the Times.
The 21-year-old Nigerian attacker spent a part of last season on loan at Gent and had a decent campaign with the Belgian side.
Awoniyi scored thrice for the Belgians and has also had spells at Royal Excel Mouscron, NEC and FSV Frankfurt.
Liverpool fans react to Awoniyi’s valuation
The Reds have pulled off some great deals in the past, with the likes of Christian Benteke and Mamadou Sakho leaving for decent sums. Jordon Ibe, Danny Ings and Dominic Solanke also left for good money, and if Joyce is right, the valuation does seem a little steep for Awoniyi.
Many Liverpool fans could not believe the news from Joyce and were ready to thank Michael Edwards if the deal was done.
