Glasgow Celtic are reportedly interested in signing Liverpool forward Taiwo Awoniyi on a permanent deal.

Former FIFA U-17 World cup winner Taiwo Awoniyi is targeted by Celtic as a possible replacement for  Odsonne Edouardo according to the Daily Star.

The Celtic striker is on the wish list of several premier league clubs, including Arsenal, Aston Villa and Leicester City been a possible destination.

Awoniyi spent last season on loan in the Bundesliga with Mainz, having previously been loaned to FSV Frankfurt, NEC, KAA Gent, and Royal Excel Mouscron as a result of his inability to break into the first team of Liverpool.

The 23-year-old loan spell at Mainz didn’t turn out as he expected, managing just one goal in 12 appearances for the Bundesliga side in the 2019/20 season.

The Imperial Academy product is currently valued at  €3.2 million (transfermarkt),  but Celtic will have to pay three that price according to reports.
