Huddersfield Town makes bold move for Liverpool Striker, Awoniyi
According to reports from England, Championship club Huddersfield Town have been mulling over a move for Liverpool striker Taiwo Awoniyi, who is back in England training with the first team before the transfer window closes for business.
The first choice striker for Huddersfield Town, Karlan Grant continues to be linked with an exit from the club and his omission from the match-day squad against Norwich City on Saturday would have added credibility to the reports.
Yorkshire Live have identified three possible candidates to replace Grant in the event that he departs Huddersfield Town.
Awoniyi is one of the players, the others being Mo Eisa (Peterborough United) and Kayden Jackson (Ipswich Town).
Due to the Nigerian striker having no caps for the Super Eagles, Huddersfield Town have to pay a large transfer fee and pay him high wages before he can qualify for a work permit.
Since joining Liverpool in 2015, Awoniyi has been on loan to FSV Frankfurt, NEC, Royal Excel Mouscron, KAA Gent and Mainz due to the work permit obstacle.
The 23-year-old is also linked with a move to Scottish Premiership champions Celtic.
