Premier League new boys Nottingham Forest signed former Liverpool forward Taiwo Awoniyi for a club-record fee and a former Nigeria international forward believes the Reds may regret letting him leave.

Speaking to GOAL, Ndubisi Chukunyere believes Awoniyi has everything it takes to become one of the Premier Leagues’ most lethal strikers.

“By all standards, the return to England is a great move and I am upbeat that he will excel because he is well built for the English Premier League.” He told the football publication.

Chukunyere stated Liverpool’s solid front three hindered the forward’s chances of getting into Jurgen Klopp’s starting XI.

“Many may argue that Liverpool at that time had Salah, Mane, and Firmino, but the reality remains that Awoniyi was not given that chance to prove his worth.” He said.

“Well, all these things happen in football but trust me, if our man shines with Forest, Liverpool will bite their fingers for letting a quality player go. Until then, we can only hope that Awoniyi makes everyone proud and justify the price tag.”

Awoniyi moved to Bundesliga side Union Berlin on a permanent basis last summer after an impressive loan spell with the German club, he scored 20 goals in 43 appearances in all competitions in their 2021/2022 campaign.
