Complete Sports are reporting his situation via ECHO that Belgian outfit Anderlecht – managed by former Manchester City defender Vincent Kompany – have already had a €5million bid rejected this summer.

It is believed that Awoniyi prefers to continue his footballing career in the German Bundesliga where he played in the last two seasons or return the UK.

That remains possible, with Union Berlin and Mainz keen after Awoniyi impressed during recent loan stints, though the latter’s attempts to strike another temporary deal were rejected.

Premier League side West Bromwich Albion also hold an interest, with their new manager Valerien Ismael having kept tabs on the striker during his time at Barnsley.

Rangers boss Steven Gerrard is also said to be a fan, though the Scottish champions’ need for striking reinforcements will be dictated by Alfredo Morelos’ uncertain future.

West Brom, Fulham and Stoke City are reported to be the three clubs monitoring the progress of Nigerian striker Taiwo Awoniyi in which Premier League side Liverpool could sell him this summer.
